Dan Bettridge. “For those who don’t like country and blues you’re not gonna like this” lucky for Dan Bettridge we are one of those many people that do. One of the ones to watch according to Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn and we definitely agree. His soulful voice of the country blues genre will appeal to the fans of Bon Iver , Willy Mason and Sam Airey, and from what we have seen of his performance in the Senedd in cardiff (as a part of Take Over Cardiff run by the British Council) he also appeals to the younger girls.
The event kicked off with some young poets from Literature Wales describing their perceptions of Wales to young children. Then we were taken to see a dance group called Rubicon who showed us an Ethiopian Street dance and this was a treat.
Bettridge is a talented musician and we are expecting big things in the next few years. He has already played the likes of the well known Green man festival and is set for A bright future. He is a skillfull musician not only can he sing but also plays guitar to accompany his heartfelt lyrics (that he has written himself).
Bettridge is a talented young rising star who we can see following in the footsteps of the likes of Jake Bugg.
