Production Description:

The Meeting Place is series of concerts featuring musicians from Wales and beyond. A feast of musical vitality in the spirit of the 1960’s folk revival. All of the musicians taking part in The Meeting Place will come together for a collaborative celebratory concert on our final night at the Edinburgh Fringe. The Welsh translation of Meeting Place is "Man Cyfarfod," in Scottish it is "Howff," which was a legendary Edinburgh folk club in the early sixties presenting music, spoken word and poetry. Participating artists are Beverley Martyn, Mark Pavey and The Dark Philosophers, Idrissa Camara, Olion Byw, and Jess Hall.

It is a meeting of minds and a meeting of hearts.
