The Adelphi presents … Gruff Rhys and Guests: Set Fire To The Stars.

Watch as Super Furry Animals frontman and singer-songwriter Gruff Rhys performs his recently released soundtrack to the Dylan Thomas film Set Fire To The Stars. He will be joined by Y Niwl members Alun Tan Lan, Gruff Ab Arwel and Siôn Glyn. Topeka, Kansas-born drummer Kliph Scurlock, and walking brass section Gavin Fitzjohn will also join in the celestial cacophony.

During the performances, ace film director Dylan Goch (who cut his teeth mixing VHS tapes at 1990s raves) will re-imagine and remix the said monochrome movie as they play. DJs from the mighty Finders Keepers will be on hand to help create a most memorable musical happening.

Ticket holders are also invited to a free screening of the film Set Fire To The Stars (Certificate 15) at 7pm prompt. Starring Elijah Wood and Celyn Jones, the Andy Goddard directed film concerns Dylan Thomas’s first week in the US in 1950 and the struggle that his agent had in keeping him on the straight and narrow.

Please arrive at 6.30pm if you would like to attend the screening as well as the concert.
