An evening of foot tapping melodies, deeply moving songs and hilarious humour.
Join Huw Williams as he tells you the story of how a woman working in the dole office accidentally changed his life, how he wrote a song about a train that he still doesn’t understand and why £2,000 mysteriously turned up in his bank account.

Huw Williams began his professional career as a singer songwriter. He toured and recorded as part of the duo Huw and Tony Williams, whose songs were covered by many other artists in Britain, North America and Europe, including Fairport Convention whose version of Summer Before the War and Simon Nicol’s Rosemary’s Sister brought him to a much wider audience. He has also worked as a broadcaster producing and presenting programs for BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Wales.

‘Well-crafted and finely-honed songs, each one an absolute belter. Many songwriters could take a lesson from his brilliant chord progressions and his thoughtful and entertaining lyrics, but his magic touch just about seals it and cajoles the listening public to come back for more – and more and more.’
