This is Carwyn Ellis, from the group Colorama. He’s sat on the bank of his local river, the Cynin, near Carmarthen in Dyfed, west Wales. The song he is playing is, ‘Valley Song’, which he informs us will be on his group’s next LP.
Colorama’s latest LP, ‘Box’, is on heavy rotation here at Caught by the River and we also enjoyed this weeks session for Marc Riley on 6 Music. That’s up on the iplayer and you can hear it by clicking HERE.. Carwyn will be appearing, solo, at the next Caught by the River presents…gig, in London on January 19th, along with The Sand Band and Jeanette Leech. Further info on that can be found HERE.
The film was shot by our good friend and collaborator, Kieran Evans, and Down by the River is a project that we will be working on together throughout 2011.
