Cerys Charms Aber

Cerys Matthews charmed a crowd of around 2000 people in the grounds of Aberystwyth Castle last night at this year's Castell Rock festival.

Concerns that the site may not be able to cope with the numbers - a record for the festival - dissolved as Cerys's brand of mellow, feelgood country rock left everyone smiling and the organisers happy with a gamble that had paid off. Her band ended a perfect day in the sun for the large crowd who had watched a succession of mainly local acts throughout the day.
The event was being held for the sixth year and was free with donations collected for the charity Debra.

A link to 70 more pictures of the day is here, including Nik Turner, Who Saw Who, Violetones, Rogues and Convoi Exceptionnel:
