As I have mentioned in my first post, I am obsessed with quality music, so it became an essential part of my life.

Very often I stay up and watch street musicians playing, who have a different manner of playing music and I have no idea why, but I really like it. I believe that at one day I’ll try to play on the street too. Do you think it is something about alternative lifestyle?

Set in the picturesque Mumbles area of Swansea, festival goers enjoyed spectacular views across The Gower Peninsula and Swansea Bay and some of the best grassroots jazz and blues of the modern era.
