Cwmbach Male Choir

Founded in the Heart of Aberdare - Queen of the Valleys


Colin Hughes

The choir is sad to learn of the death of Colin Hughes, the author of "Lemon, Lime and Sarsparilla" regarded as the definitive book of the history of the Italian immigrants from the Bardi area into South Wales. When Colin learned of the choir's plan to visit Bardi in 2008 he joined the tour and, along with Aldo Baccheta, was the reason why the choir became involved in the commemorations of the sinking of the Arandora Star. Colin was a genuine supporter of the choir from his Buckinghamshire home, a generous and helpful man, he will be much missed by his family, to whom Cwmbach Male Choir sends its sincere condolences.
