The Muse at Brecon, a new arts and community venue based at the Old Museum in Brecon Town Centre.
Built in 1837 as a Congregationalist Chapel, the building later became the town museum. Now privately owned, we want it to be used again to inspire, entertain, educate and amuse.
The Mid Wales R&B Club was started by Chris and Cath Rogers in 2014 and started in pubs around Powys’ but soon moved to Rhayader in 2015 at CARAD until the end of 2016 and in 2017 The MUSE Brecon .
The Mid Wales R&B Club is currently run by a small but perfectly formed team. Chris started the club with Cath then Angus Kings joined with Ian keddle, Jonathon Morris our sound guys and Phil Sheridan our poster designer as a way to bring together people as passionate about Blues as they were. Since then, the club has grown increasingly in size and popularity, with the monthly gigs selling out and Blues artists from far and wide wanting to play.
