Tŷ Sain Concerts


The concert series Tŷ Sain is being proposed

as there are currently no formal opportunities for free improvisers, to present their work in North Wales. Tŷ Sain was created by the duo `Hedge` as a response to this but this is not a concert series for `Hedge` alone and all artists and improvisers are invited; members of the `improvisers' networks Wales, and improvisers' beyond the borders. 

The Genre: Free improvisation in performance and associated art forms.

Location? The starting point will be Bangor or Llandudno, but can be delivered anywhere: The A55 corridor through to Chester & Wrexham can be considered.

Frequency? Ty Sain concert one was held on November 20th 2017. A concert series that occurs roughly every 6 weeks - 2 months starting June 2018 is the proposal.

Interested as an individual- the process of how it works to follow, for now, send a message via the `network wales` contact form link ( upper right ) Or call Phil Morton 07999518582
