All those years of travelling, jetsetting, driving though endless nights, researching and inspirational writing, weaving magic across Wales, England and the whole wide world, came to an end in 2001 when Mick Tems suffered a devastating stroke.Doctors and friends feared he would never walk or play the much-loved melodeon again - but in the space of nearly six years, Mick is back!

Mick was a founder member of Swansea Jack, who at the time consisted of Mike James and John Howes.
...
After some memorable tours in Brittany (including the Brest Festival) and an album named The Seven Wonders (the stunning traditional Welsh song collected by Mick), Swansea Jack and Mick and Pat Smith (who had just joined the group) came to a parting of the ways, and Mick and Pat formed Calennig.

...
Mick's six years of recovery has been slow and long, but it has been remarkable.He and his partner Olly Price have joined as musicians the Welsh dance teams Dawnswyr Glanllwyd (from Cwmbran) and Gwerinwyr Gwent (from Bassaleg, just outside Newport).Mick and Olly have been four times to Ireland, where Dawnswyr Glanllwyd performed in front of thousands at the Kenmare Fleadh.
...
Mick and Olly have appeared as a duo at the Crediton Festival, Devon, and at the Captain Cook Shanty Festival in Whitby, North Yorkshire in 2006.
...
Mick has reinvented himself as a one-armed percussionist - and he says it's the Tabwrdd he's got to thank for giving him a new lease of life.In his post-stroke days, Mick was desperate to play something - and he brought a Tabwrdd from Marcus Music, an instrument makers and repairers in Tredegar House, Newport, Wales, who had fashioned it to a very old manuscript researched by Ceri Rees Matthews and Cass Meurig (of fernhill fame.) The Tabwrdd, an ancient drum, comes from North Wales.It's smaller and less sophisticated than its Irish cousin, the bodhran, but larger than the English tabor.The Tabwrdd is a rarity - Marcus Music were just about to show one at the prestigious Lowender Peran festival in Cornwall, but sold it to Mick instead.
...
And there IS some good news: After the stroke, Mick never touched the melodeon for nearly six years - until now.But he picked up one of his two treasured Eric Martins, and played a few notes on it - a small step, but a giant leap!
Mick would like to thank events organisers for their understanding and patience.
