The Living:
William Squire , Rachel Thomas
Haydn Jones , Jeffrey Segal and William Eedle
The Dead:
Aubrey Richards , Basil Jones
Mari Lwyd-the Grey Mare , symbolised by a horse's skull hung with ribbons-is by tradition in Wales carried from house to house on New Year's Eve by a party of singers and impromptu poets.
In this dramatic ballad it is the Dead who return, carrying the Man Lwyd, and the Living who, warming themselves at the fire, refuse entrance to the lonely Dead.
