WELSH REGIONAL CONTEST 2018At the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea on Saturday March 17th the band came a disappointing 8th place in a Second Section where there was strong competition to encounter. It was not the result expected but the adjudications from both Steve Sykes and John Winterflood noted many positive aspects to the performance.
That is the nature of competition – you play to your potential and have to accept that on the day other bands were deemed to be better. Despite the result, Crwbin retain their place for 2019 in the Second Section.
We move on full of enthusiasm to the next competition – the SEWBBA contest in Cardiff!
