JAM Tybie rocked Llandybie for a third consecutive year over the weekend.

The music event returned on Saturday, August 24 and has now been set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC) which will put the event on an official level to safeguard it for future years as a vehicle to provide a community focus, a promotional event for what Llandybie has to offer as a destination and as a boost to local business.

All profits from the event as a Community Interest Company will go back to the community event for next year and to support local charitable causes.

The first event in 2017 was supported by over 14 performers who all performed for free, but the follow up year meant, in order to set the event on a commercial footing and make it sustainable, acts to the most part were paid.

Both years have seen four figure sums raised for worthy causes with this year’s event supporting the Golau Cancer Charity with a cheque from profits to be donated and the Sue Ladd and Friends being represented on the day with charity buckets.

Jac Y Do made a welcome return to the line-up for 2019 alongside Anthony Cresci, Minnesota Module, Sian Richards, Andrew Harley, Bois Y Bush, Santiago, Jemma Krysa, Beca, Ammanford Town Silver Band, Carmarthen Ukuleles, The Bar Hounds, Moose and Pwdin Reis, Meat Load Tribute and Manumission

The new Jam Tybie Company is headed up by local businessmen Stuart Thomas, Emyr Nicholas and organiser Dai Nicholas.

Dai Nicholas said: “Thanks all. It was a good day.

“Llandybie is great village and I’m glad be apart of it rock on.”
