Women singing not folk


We are the Welsh

The land of song
Its July 1993 and I am at the inaugural Phoenix Festival with my Father.

It’s the first day and we sit in awkward silence eating burritos, the crowd in front of the main stage, bouncing behind us.

It’s not long before we go our separate ways - our paths not crossing again until the end of the festival.

My Fathers weekend is to be life changing. He tries Ecstasy for the first time and has a road to Damascus experience.

On returning home he buys turntables and a serious vinyl habit ensues.

He would develop a love for Gospel House and the voices of Michelle Weeks, Barbara Tucker and Candi Staton would become synonymous with my home, my family and become part of the soundtrack to my life.

Here’s one of my Fathers heroes; Carl Cox playing Frankie Knuckles’s re-mix of Jamie Principle’s - Your love...
