Ruthin AllStyles music nights have moved online
For the duration of the Covid-19 restrictions
We may not be able to physically gather together at The Feathers – but the music will go on. Each Thursday from 8.00pm we will be presenting an evening of music from our regular members and anybody else who has ever played at the club – plus a few guest contributors too.
We aim to make it the nearest thing to live music, whilst making it accessible to as many people as possible without having to download and juggle with any complicated software.

Watch the entire show above, including the part Facebook chose to block.
Sadly Facebook chose to spoil our enjoyment 15 minutes before the end of the show because UMG made a copyright claim on the grounds one of the songs contained the melody/lyrics belonging to them.
Now I totally understand copyrights are to be protected but in the real world, songs will be covered. There are literally millions of cover songs posted on Facebook and YouTube every day.
Facebook deals with these claims by simply blocking the videos, whereas YouTube has negotiated a deal with the music publishers to pay the advertising revenue to the copyright owners, creating a win-win situation.
Compare Facebook’s sledgehammer approach with YouTube’s sensible and conciliatory method in the screenshots below.
