Pete Shaw on TVPete Shaw on TV

Saturday 1st August

We have just had an email from Pete Shaw telling us he is appearing at the National Eisteddfod in Bala on Sunday 2nd August. He will be backing a local Welsh Male Voice ( the Bro Glyndwr choir). The event will be televised on BBC Wales and (he believes) on S4C channels around the 4pm mark. Pete and the choir will be performing four songs, 'The huntsmens chorus', 'You Raise me up', 'The rose' and 'Five foot two'. Some years ago you would only have been able to see this if you had lived in Wales. Nowadays you can see these channels anywhere in the UK on Sky or freeview. Enjoy...
