Mally Powell

I didn't know Mally Powell, but a lot of people in Hay did. One of my friends, who knew him, told me a bit about him. She told me about his music, and that he could fix anything mechanical.
He was from a farming family near Llanigon, and his funeral took place over the weekend, at a little chapel high on the hills above the Wye Valley. He was only forty seven, but he'd been ill for some time.
He was, in a small way, a rock star, and a lot of the people standing outside the chapel (because there was no room inside) had come up from London to see him off.
Over on Hay on TV, there's a video of him with his band.
