The Wyrd Wonder Presents…Sun Aug 6th, 7.30 pm.
Fuchsia / Bragod.
We are delighted to welcome back to Cardiff the spellbinding Tony Durant / Fuchsia who will be visiting Chapter as part of a rare, small tour of the UK.
Their 1971 psychedelic folk opus with its classical string sections, poetic lyrics and beautifully woven arrangements is considered an art rock masterpiece.
As well as material from the early days, expect to hear songs from the latest album, ‘Fuchsia II: From psychedelia to a distant place’.
“Returning with dignity and verve, Durant’s created a worthy follow-up to his age-old gem. Did we have to wait quite so long?”
— Jan Zarebski, The Record Collector
The extraordinary Bragod compliment the evening with their exploration of medieval Welsh ceremonial music and poetry. Mary — Anne Robert's enchanting movement and powerful voice is expertly coupled with the evocative playing of Robert Evans, a maestro of the European Lyre and its descendent, the Crwth.
