Who I'd like to meet:Performers with a strong sense of originality and innovation of song, performance and interpretation, for both the Showcase and open mic.
Here is a selection of performers who we've welcomed to the Showcase over the past few months:

Here they are performing at Cardiff's Llanover Hall:
Our fifth evening was on Tuesday 13th January with the outstanding Stephen Light and the Black Sand Band. Here's the band playing their song "Kissing Martha Wainwright":
