LLANGWM’s Sunday lunchtime concerts take on an academic twist this weekend with a trio that started life as a clarinet teacher and his two students.

Alun Williams, David Owen and Steve Shaw are better known as the Chalumeau Trio, playing music from the early baroque to 20th century swing for fun and enjoyment.

Alun, the teacher who bravely whipped his two students into shape is now a professional saxophonist, clarinettist and flautist.

He says he still needs a lot of patience with his two challenging partners.

David took up clarinet and sax at the age of 11 and after a career in financial services returned to Wales to play in whatever group would take him.

Steve took the opportunity to study the sax under Alun’s tutelage when he retired from the old Waterston refinery.

The name chalumeau for those not familiar with the word is a single-reed woodwind instrument popular with folk musicians and seen as the predecessor to the modern day clarinet.

The Chalumeau Trio concert is sponsored by Redkite Solicitors and will take place at St Jerome's Church, Llangwm this Sunday, February 10.

The Music at Lunchtime concerts all start at 1pm and raise money to support the exhibition of The Talking Tapestry of Langum, completed as part of the Heritage Llangwm project which successfully restored the church.

Tickets (£5 in advance or £6 at the door) are available from heritagellangwm.org.uk/concerts, from Cleddau Stores, Llangwm, or from Pamela Hunt on 01437 899966.
