Cate Le Bon reflects on the music and the landscape that influenced her music

West Wales songwriter Cate Le Bon is one of the first musicians to appear at a free lunchtime session in Swansea's Glynn Vivian Art Gallery.

The December afternoon gig by the Welsh indie-electronica-folk singer, comes at the end of a very successful year.

She was featured in MOJO magazine's top 50 albums, appeared on Gruff Rhys's Neon Neon album, and has just released her debut album, Me Oh My.

Afterwards she talked to BBC Wales about her influences and future plans.

Future gigs planned for the gallery include Euros Childs, Spencer MacGarry Season and Barefoot Dance of The Sea.

Gordon Dalton, the museum's learning and interpretation officer, said: "I just wanted to get more, and different kinds, of people in the gallery.

"The Free: 30 Sessions just seem to have worked. Next year we will be having a broader spectrum of films and gigs, and we'll be staging those at different places even when we're closed for refurbishment."
