About our showcase artists:
In addition to performing at the Cerdd Cymru : Music Wales showcase reception, our artists will also perform as part of Manchester Folk Festival which runs alongside EFEx. Here’s a little about the artists being presented by Wales and details on when and where to hear them at the Folk Festival.
"Taking us on an emotional journey from darkness into light, Glyn’s soothing and delicate tones belie lyrics that are dark, poignant and thought provoking." ~ Songlines
"Lisa Jên’s ethereal voice still swoops beguilingly over Martin Hoyland’s expansive arrangements, fusing harps, dulcimers and guitars with dub beats, loops and pounding bass… ‘Yr Olaf’ sounds like Kate Bush conducting a Druidic ceremony." ~ UNCUT
"Welsh musicians don’t come more sensitive, accomplished and exploratory than this crew." ~ fRoots
CATRIN FINCH & SECKOU KEITA
"an emotional demonstration of how two virtuoso musicians triumphantly bring different cultures together" ~ Robin Denselow, The Guardian
There are many more musicians we’d like to introduce at EFEx, so we’ve made a Spotify playlist to share some of the wealth of music coming out of Wales right now - http://bit.ly/CerddMusic.
