This October sees the return of acclaimed Cardiff singer-songwriter and folk musician Gareth Bonello, also known as The Gentle Good with his fourth album Ruins/Adfeilion. To mark the release, we have a series of exclusive live video performances of songs from his album which were recorded at The Gate Arts Centre in Cardiff. Watch the first – The Fisherman – for which Gareth shared the following:
The Fisherman – A tale of unrequited love and portrayal of loneliness, I wrote this song as a tribute to one of my favourite writers, Richard Brautigan. The fisherman has spent years attempting to catch his elusive quarry, which eventually breaks from the surface of the water to offer a final exquisite glance before disappearing forever. Recorded live at The Gate Arts Centre in Cardiff, I’m joined by the wonderfully talented pairing of Callum Duggan on double bass and Jennifer Gallichan on vocals.
We will be bringing you more in the release very soon. It’s available to pre-order now (details below).
Ruins/Adfeilion is released October 14th via Bubblewrap Collective
