History of Popular Music in Merthyr Tydfil Exhibition: Thanks!

Well, after around two years of planning, interviewing many community members and collating close to 200 photographs, the Lost History of Popular Music in Merthyr Tydifil Exhibition at the Redhouse is in its last week of a one month run. Like I have said many times, the exhibition is the communities not mine, and it has been a pleasure and an honor to be involved with it. The next stage is to work on probably an edited collection on the impacts of lost histories of local music making. Additionally I am wanting to find a more permanent place for the exhibition and wait for it: look for another community in South Wales that would be interested in showcasing their histories – any ideas welcome. So for the moment, here are some reminders of what the exhibition looked like. Thanks  again to everyone who contributed – it is really appreciated. It is not too late to see it, so catch it while you can.
