Aber Jazz and Blues Festival presents donnie joe’s American Swing @ Ffwrn
Just a brief write up about our recent appearance in West Wales as part of the annual Aber Jazz & Blues Festival. This event runs Thursday through Sunday with events at various venues throughout Fishguard.
We performed at Ffwrn as a swing trio. Ffwrn is a Cafe Bar with a wood fire bakery at the back. They serve food, drinks and it serves as a live music venue as well. It is a large open space with a very bohemian atmosphere.
It was great set and we even came home with some fresh baked bread. I also snapped this shot of these 2 legends who were on the wallpaper in the Gents. If you don’t recognise them it is South Wales own Lionel Davies on double bass with the legendary Slim Gaillard performing at the 2nd Brecon Jazz Festival in 1985 at what appears to be on the street.
