We are very excited to have Welsh musician The Gentle Good appear as part of our #CIFLive series. This will be filmed from the green room of Camberley Theatre and broadcast live via the Camberley International Faceboook page from 7pm on Wednesday 12th October.
The Gentle Good is the stage name of Cardiff based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gareth Bonello. Taking influence from the traditional music and folklore of Wales along with a myriad of sources from all over the world, Gareth creates timeless folk music in both English and Welsh.
The Gentle Good have released several critically acclaimed albums including ‘Tethered for the Storm’ (2011) and ‘Y Bardd Anfarwol’ (The Immortal Bard, 2013) both of which were nominated for the Welsh Music Prize. Y Bardd Anfarwol tells the story of the famous Chinese poet Li Bai and was written during a residency with the Chengdu Associated Theatre of Performing Arts in Southern China. It was awarded the Welsh language album of the year award in 2014 and was the inspiration behind an award winning play; ‘Rhith Gan’, which was staged by Theatr Genedlaethol at the National Eisteddfod in 2016.
We are inviting a very limited number of guests to watch Gareth’s performance, live from the green room, please e mail Jo.Bartlett@surreyheath.gov.uk if you would like to attend.
