The St Illtud’s Sessions

Bel Bue & Friends ‘The St  Illtud’s Sessions’


Recordings from The Galilee Chapel, St Illtud’s Church, Llantwit Major, Wales

Released on World Mental Health Day, any profits from the EP will be gratefully donated to the mental health charity PAPYRUS.

The EP is a collection of songs by musician’s Bel Blue and Kevs Ford from their field recording project at St Illtud’s. The project evolved from playing at the monthly open mic in St Illtuds and conversations with Canon Edwin Counsell which led to an invite to record in the remarkable space. The EP is a result of those sessions.
