Thursday 24th March – Tuesday 29th March 2016

[Free DIY Music & Song Sessions Event]

(Please note that this event is not a Folk Festival.

There are no paid acts.

All music & song is unamplified & purely acoustic)


All welcome!

*******************

The 7th glorious year's grand venture in wild Wales presented by Mr Happy enterprises will be taking place once again this Easter in Anglesey, North Wales.

At Easter, Mr Happy & the Gloom Band [from Chester] plus many other musical friends, will be off to the Bull Bay Hotel, Bull Bay, Nr. Amlwch, Anglesey for our annual singing & music event –




Once more onto the beach, dear friends!!

It'll be on from Maundy Thursday 24th until Tuesday 29th March 2016

It's set up just like a folk festival but without any concerts or stuff you have to pay for.

Also 'cause everything's on site, there's no need to wander the streets looking for a session.

Bull Bay Hotel's a large venue which can offer up to 4 separate rooms/ areas for different sorts of seshes – singarounds, folk club, mad Irish diddly thrash, seriously non-smiling English music, dreary French tunes, Old Timey/ Bluegrass, maudlin unaccompanied dirges, etc

[I've tried to cater for all tastes as far as possible & over the last several years of running the event, this has worked out well]

(Mr Happy blowing own trumpet – please forgive!)

All welcome - come on down - it'll be brill!!

The campsite will be available from Thursday 24th March – Tuesday 29th March 2016

It's a DIY do- bring yourselves, voices, instruments ,your tents, vans, caravans & kitchen sink!

It's all FREE!!

FREE camping! - Big field overlooking Irish Sea, for tents, caravans etc

No need to book camping, just turn up.

FREE butties during each evening session! Yummy!

Up to 4 separate rooms available for various types of music & song
+ outside beer garden overlooking the bay.

Session/Singaround Thur nite/Fri nite/Sat afternoon & evening/Sun afternoon & evening
