ABEREIDDY,
OR WHAT DID THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION EVER DO FOR US?

The village of Abereiddy has a unique story which is told by this unique show. 
The show has fourteen original songs, but it’s not a concert. It has two narrators, but it’s not a narrative. It has spoken roles and a cast of sixteen, but it’s not a play. Performed by local folk bands Broadoak and
Fishguard Folk Singers, the description that seems to fit it best is a kind of Folk Musical (sort of). The show was a huge hit at this year’s Fishguard Folk Festival, and has recently been performed in Newport and Solva to much critical acclaim. At the start of the 19th century, Abereiddy was exactly what it was at the start of the 20th century: a tiny rural hamlet housing a few farm workers. However, during those hundred years its population grew enormously, it rose to be a major industrial site with a huge quarry, and then just as quickly it went back to what it had been before. With pathos, humour and a little anger, the ghosts of Abereiddy tell us what went on,
both in Abereiddy and beyond it, during that century of change.
