It's Yuletide!

The image is from one of our Twelfth Night Celebrations in Llandinam. We're also about to enter TASC's 25th year, so stay tuned for more news in 2018 about what is being planned.

A Sad Loss

We were very sad to learn that Esta Beilby passed away on 5th December. Esta took part in many TASC projects over the years such as the Llandinam Village Band and the Severn Suite, and enjoyed music and dance in many ways. Our sympathies go out to Geoff and the family. A celebration of her life will take place at the Monty Club in Newtown on the evening of Saturday 20th January.

New Trustee

In recognition of her work on the Taking Steps project, and her energetic contributions to the folk scene in Mid Wales we've asked her Lisa Sture to join our board of trustees. Welcome aboard, Lisa!


MEMBERSHIP RUNS FROM 1st NOVEMBER each year. Just in case you'd forgotten!
We'd love you to renew, re-join if you have lapsed, or join us if you haven't done so before. It's our members that keeps us going. For only a fiver you can help us remain a voice for folk in the area, and a point of contact.

You can pay on-line or contact any of the trustees.


We haven't the resources to cover listings, but there are regular sessions listed by Folk Life, Folk Wales and Broadsheep.

You can sign up for our newsletter and we'll let you know items of particular interest. We also list and link on our facebook page.

Our favourite sessions include the Bull & Heifer in Bettws Cedewain and the Arvon Ales sessions in Llandod. There's also a new slow session starting up near Kington, the Almeley Steady Session starting Dec 7th.

Taking Steps

Our Dartmoor Project is coming to an end. It researched stepdance styles, music, and historical background and was led by Lisa Sture.

Workshops were carried out by Spinningpath Arts. Pictured is Jenny Read with an attentive class of primary school children.

Visit the website for the latest news.

Teaching Videos

To help you learn we have a handful of teaching videos on our site.

There is also the sheet music for each tune for those of you who like to work that way. There is a jpg or a pdf file to choose from.

You might also find our Youtube channel of interest.

Community Bands

Our Community Bands page lists a number of groups where you can make music with other people.

The picture shows members of MontyFolk from Montgomery with Mid Powys group DiEnw, plus a couple of TASC trustees. Venue is Garth Village Hall.
