What’s on: November 2019

Winter is closing in, but there’s still plenty of bluegrass around to warm you up.


The summer festival season may be a distant memory, but you can get your fix with this winter picking weekend at Clyro Court, near Hay-on-Wye. The picking is free, and various accommodation choices are available including hotel rooms, a bunkhouse and camping. Details on how to book accommodation can be found on the event’s Facebook page.

22nd – 24th: Black Mountain Bluegrass Winter Picking Weekend, Clyro Court, Hay-on-Wye.


Lovers of old-time and traditional music are particularly well catered for this month, with Bruce Molsky, Rhiannon Giddens and Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves all gigging.

Americana and roots music is also on offer – The Tillers bring their “distinctive stringband style” from Cincinnati, and California’s Dustbowl Revival hit the UK as part of a bigger European tour.

UK bands on the road include Cardboard Fox and Jaywalkers, whose tour includes a support slot for Dustbowl Revival.
