Firebrand fiddler promises foot tapping

FIDDLER Richard Wood will launch the new Where Good Music Matters Season at the Park and Dare Theatre in Treorchy next month.

Back in the spotlight after a break of more than 10 years, Wood is arguably one of the most entertaining and talented fiddlers from the Celtic world.

And despite his absence from the music scene, critics say he has lost none of his fire and zip in the intervening years.

Accompanied on guitar, bodhran and vocals by Gordon Belsher, the performance combines the best of jigs, reels and strathspeys with Wood’s own compositions.
