Music Festival another success
Two new stars graced the festival this year. Undoubtedly, the young lady with a big future is Chloe Davies, from the adjacent village of Moulton, who spell bound everyone with her differing pieces. Chloe, a 14 year old at Cowbridge Comprehensive, gave a very assured and mature performance showing that she can not only sing brilliantly but has the support of her studio to bring her performance to life.
The other new voice this year was James from the Six Bells. His sole offering of ‘Mustang Sally’, despite being unrehearsed, was exceptional.
The youngest musicians were Sam and Logan on drums and guitar. They were very talented and enjoyed by the audience. Their group has no name yet but Rob Cowen suggested ‘Slogan’ was appropriate. The entire event was due to the enthusiasm of Andrew. His contribution to the singing was excellent (as we have come to expect) and he was ably supported by his brother Ian, a professional accompanist. Andrew invited a number of excellent performers including an ex villager now a resident of Rhoose, soprano Sheila.
None of this would have been possible without the superb support of Peter and the others committee members from the Village Hall. As it was the weather was fine and the 100+ audience were able to enjoy the hog roast and pavlova in the sunshine.  The Unknowns, led by Roger Bowles, were brilliant. The band played for an hour and they were so good that it seemed like five minutes. In the open session Dave Mitchell treated everyone to some classics, which we all enjoyed and his grand-daughter was delighted to see him performing .
Congratulations to everyone concerned and we can be in no doubt that the event will be eagerly awaited next year.
