News from Abroad: A barbershopper’s visit in Wales

Posted on

Music Category Specialist Paul Wigley thought he was just attending a judging seminar for our barbershop brothers and sisters in the UK. That simple trip expanded dramatically once he decided to add Wales to his schedule!

Paul, Caenarfon BS workshopPaul writes: “I have a lot of relatives in Wales, and when I added that to my itinerary, the next thing I knew I was doing a workshop in Caernarfon, Wales, at the Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias (music school) and in Cardiff, at the Acapella Studios.  Each workshop had about 50 attendees, some from BABS and LABBS, but most from the respective communities of the workshops.

The picture of me and a magazine is from the Welsh language magazine “Golwg”  (typical Welsh…not many consonants!), but it had a very nice article about the workshops, and the magazine is read throughout Wales.
