Saturday 8 July- Amphitheatre Sessions 18.00-19.15
Following on from the growing success of ‘My Love (Bring out the Guards)’. The third single ‘Feels Like Home’ taken from the popular debut album ‘Ouch!!!’ Sees Ragsy joining forces with Cwmbach Male Choir. The harmonious and majestic voices of the choir who are from Ragsy’s home town of Aberdare, combine with the singer-songwriters raw, soulful, soaring vocals. Revealing a journey of pride, passion and familiarity.
The video to coincide with the single draws upon Ragsy’s walk down memory lane, bringing together his experiences of home and homeland. Through the production of Skytec Aerial Film and under the guidance of Richard Beecher, Students Dan Bailey, Bethan Ryder and Rachel Davies who attend Richard’s film course at University of Wales (Trinity Saint David) have helped capture in film what Ragsy has attempted to portray in song.
A lifelong dream and ambition of Ragsy’s was not only to perform with a choir but to also sing in his native tongue. Being a proud Welshman he has always wanted to be able to speak Welsh. To quote ‘I feel like a caveman without fire, it’s the missing link for me. I wished I had paid more attention at school. But unfortunately there were not many people in my social circles speaking Welsh as a first language when I was younger. So I am hoping that by singing ‘Fy Hafan I’, (the Welsh version of this song) which was kindly translated and achieved by the guidance of good friends Andrew TOMMO Thomas and Terwyn Davies this will enable me to continue the journey of learning this beautiful language’.
‘Feels Like Home / Fy Hafan i’ which was recorded at Northhouse Studios with producer Chris Peet will be available to pre-order from iTunes at an exclusive offer. For more information about this check the social media links, join the mailing list or visit the website at www.ragsymusic.com
