The Gentle Good + Louis O'Hara + Kaspar Hauser, 20 July | Event in Carmarthen | AllEvents.in About the event The Gentle Good + Louis O'Hara + Kaspar Hauser
The Gentle Good is the moniker of Cardiff-based musician and songwriter Gareth Bonello. Known for his enchanting melodies, intricate guitar style and beautiful acoustic arrangements, Gareth is one of the foremost songwriters working in Wales today.

The Gentle Good has released several highly acclaimed records, notably Ruins/Adfeilion, which won the Welsh Music prize in 2017 and Y Bardd Anfarwol (The Immortal Bard) which won the Welsh Language Album of the Year award in 2014.

Joining the line-up is London-based Pembrokeshire musician and producer Louis O’Hara. After releasing a series of experimental music and film scores, Louis is now focusing on a folk sound, combined with an influence from the avant garde. His band also features Frankie di Stani on clarinet and keys, William Snelling on guitar and Georgina Hamilton on cello. Together they have created a unique sound around Louis’ songs and some eclectic covers.

We’re also delighted to welcome Kaspar Hauser in support. Kaspar Hauser is a folk and experimental trio consisting of Frankie, Wil and Roz. Bonding over their mutual interest in ornithology, the band formed in 2022 and takes a DIY approach to recording, releasing an EP and several singles. Their debut album is due in springtime.

A captivating soloist, Gareth Bonello has performed all over the world, from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC to the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing. In recent years he has become a highly regarded musical collaborator, having worked extensively with artists from China and India. He is a founder member of the Khasi-Cymru Collective with artists from the Khasi communities indigenous to Northeast India. Their debut album Sai-thaiñ ki Sur (the Weaving of Voices) examined the cultural impact and colonial legacy of a Welsh mission in Northeast India and received widespread critical acclaim upon its release in 2021.

The Gentle Good’s latest release is a stripped-back exploration of traditional Welsh folk song performed on acoustic guitar, cello and vocal. Titled Galargan (Welsh for ‘Lament’) the album took form during the dark days of the pandemic, allowing Gareth’s talents as a solo singer and guitarist to take centre stage. Released in September 2023, Galargan has received rave reviews, including a rare 5 stars from The Guardian where it was listed in the top 5 folk albums of 2023.
