On Saturday 28 February 2015 I went to the Green Man Hwyl 2015 at the Cecil Sharp House in Camden Town.
Unfortunately neither Christina or Des, who I attend the Green Man Festival with, could be present at the follow up to last year’s first Hwyl.
The day started with Huw Stephens spinning the disks.
Then followed the experimental folk sounds of Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog who sing mainly in Welsh.
I then went to listen to the hilarious comedy of Mike Bubbins, followed by singer-songwriter and harpist Georgia Ruth.
There followed poet Patience Agbabi, followed on by the at times funny Sweet Baboo aka Stephen Black.
Poet, author, playwright, actor and TV presenter (phew!) Owen Sheers then recited poems concerning the experiences of wounded soldiers.
The intricately played guitar of Stanley Brinks preceded the heroic attempts of Twmpathology to teach the assembled to twmpath, ceilidh and barn-dance.
Teleman, who where suprisingly heavy at points, concluded the event in fine style.
On my way back to Camden Town, I popped into the Dublin Castle for a final pint, and in the backroom found a group from the Hwyl – the dancing continued until 0200!
