FREE live music night at The Cardiff Story Museum
- Friday, 18 May 2012
The Cardiff Story Museum has teamed up with two of Cardiff’s top music institutions to curate The Cardiff Sessions, a night of free live music in the museum’s galleries.
On 18th May 2012, five Cardiff acts chosen by The Cardiff Story, Clwb Ifor Bach and Spillers Records will take the stage for The Cardiff Sessions. The Gentle Good, Spencer McGarry, Evening Chorus, Miss Maud’s Folly and Little Arrow make up the night’s stellar line-up, with Radio Wales DJ Georgia Ruth Williams MCing. The night will also include a music quiz with prizes provided by Spillers Records.
The Cardiff Sessions will celebrate some of the best live music Cardiff has to offer, and also give visitors a chance to see the galleries and the city’s history in a new light.
The event is part of the Museums at Night, an annual after-hours celebration of arts, culture and heritage when hundreds of museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites open their doors for special evening events. It is coordinated by Culture24, and takes place over the weekend of Friday 18th - Sunday 20th May 2012.
Rachel Carney from The Cardiff Story said:
“We’re really excited about The Cardiff Sessions. It’s not the kind of event you’d usually expect to find in a museum, so it’s a great opportunity to attract new audiences to the galleries. Clwb Ifor Bach and Spillers are the mother ships of the Cardiff music scene – nobody is better placed to curate an evening of some of the best our city has to offer!”
The Cardiff Sessions is funded through the Cardiff Adult Learners' Week planning group. Adult Learners' Week is the UK’s largest annual festival of learning with thousands of events and award ceremonies, inspiring people to discover how learning can change their lives. The week is organised by NIACE Dysgu Cymru and funded by the Welsh Government.
