A wonderful live performance at Capel Y Graig, Ffwrnais/Furnace, Ceredigion by Toby Hay & David Ian Roberts.

The three improvisational pieces unfold beautifully in the room of the former chapel and now art space Capel Y Graig.

It is an extraordinary space to play music. The building has a life of its own. One of the most unusual, and powerful natural reverbs I have ever heard. Listening to these recordings now makes me smile. It reminds me how important it is to play music with friends. All three recordings are completely improvised pieces, we let the space guide us as to what to play. It also features me on a beautifully out of tune, old piano. -- Toby Hay

I'm quoting Toby Hay here because I'm in loss of words of how beautiful this is[^1].

Hay and Roberts' interplay is masterful and at no time they get lost in their musical exploration. It

For the month of May, all proceeds go to Tŷ Hafan, the hospice for children in Wales so today would be an ideal time to head over to Bandcamp and purchase it as Bandcamp have waivered their fees today so that means more money goes to the hospice.

Highly recommended!
