Martyn Joseph
Conversation and Songs. In an intimate evening of chat and songs, Martyn Joseph will be in conversation with Llantwit artist and musician Peter Cronin. This is a chance to meet the man behind the music. The Welsh folk icon will be talking candidly about all aspects of his forty years touring the world, his song writing, unique guitar style and of course the passion and compassion of the man himself. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions from the floor.
St Illtud's Church, 19:30. Doors open at 19:00.
