The Ferryside Lapwings are a small collective of village wordsmiths, poets and singer/songwriters. It was formed during a collaborative performance by the original Ferryside Trio, Glyn Jones, Dominic Williams and Alexis Jones in September 2017 at the Llanelli’s Spoken Word Saturday organised by Eleanor Shaw.

Dominic Williams is a poet and Alexis performs what she claims to spoken word accompanied by a few strummed chords. Alexis writes and sings in both English and Welsh.

Their performance will be a short lightweight bilingual mixed set of 20mins – 1/2 hour with a sense of humour, serving as natural bridge between Ifor ap Glyn and Noel James.
