This article is old - Published: Tuesday, Dec 6th, 2011

The St Giles Sessions concert series will take a festive bow this Friday in celebration of Wrexham’s Year of Culture.

Christmas will come a little early for the final concert of the year at St. Giles’ Church in the company of one of Wrexham’s most successful bands, Camera.

From Radiohead and Elbow, to Wilco and Woody Guthrie, Camera take influences from all genres of music and carve out a sound that is as powerful and epic as it is intimate and heartfelt.

The band were courted by major record labels in UK before signing to ultra-hip independent label My Kung Fu for the release of their debut album.

They have also played in front of 60,000 people at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium for the 2005 Tsunami Relief benefit concert.

Camera are a band that have consistently built on a solid foundation of classic songwriting and finely tuned, yet understated, musicianship.

Thw evening will be a chance to catch the band in the much more intimate and atmospheric surrounds of the Parish church and you can expect the usual collaborations and surprises St. Giles sessions have become so well known for over the past year.
