CARDIGAN may be a ‘home-from-home’ favourite town of rock band Broken Lines, but the last two-and-a-half years might have left them feeling jinxed!

The exciting Pembrokeshire-based three-piece were set to play Cardigan’s Small World Theatre when Covid struck.

“Our album was out and we were so excited about that gig,” recalls singer and guitarist David Wellan.

“Posters were up all around the area and we were hearing from people saying they couldn’t wait for us to play that amazing venue.

“But it never happened, of course, as everything shut down!”

When things eventually opened up again Broken Lines – who play a stunning fusion of rock styles – could not wait to be part of a move to get people out and about, providing entertainment and helping put venues back on their feet again.

“We had spent months in our studio writing and recording, but we were bursting to play live in front of people again,” said David.

“We couldn’t wait to get back to Cardigan’s Cellar Bar which is something of an iconic venue.

“We were all ready to go, fully-rehearsed and with exciting new material, then, at the 11th hour, one of the band members got Covid and once again, that was that.”

But this Saturday the band, complete with new bass guitarist, are looking forward to putting all that behind them and play a typically memorable gig at The Cellar Bar, Cardigan.
