Brythoniad Male Voice Choir singing Blue Monday
Festival No. 6 sounds like one fine music festival, described as "a festival unlike any other, in a place like no other". It is held in Portmeirion in North Wales from 14th-16th September and the line up of events sounds great, you can see all the details on their beautiful website.
But the reason I am featuring this festival on my blog is because of the following:
To celebrate New Order headlining the first year of the UK's newest festival, the Brythoniad Male Voice Choir were commissioned by Festival No.6 to record their own unique version of Blue Monday.
The 60 members of the Brythoniad Male Voice Choir, formed in 1964 in Blaenau Ffestiniog, recorded their interpretation of the seminal track in the studio, then filmed the video on location at the stunning Portmeirion, location for Festival No.6 . Surely the most unique setting for a festival the UK has ever seen?
How brilliant is this? Now I want to go to this festival...
