Gwyneth Glyn is a singer and poet. Drawing on her ancient Welsh folk tradition as well as contemporary influences, her own unique sound is often described as timeless. Her songs are inspired by the ancestral stories she heard as a child, and by the dichotomy of being brought up in the rural north and living in the vibrant capital of Cardiff in the south. She read Philosophy and Theology at Jesus College, Oxford, before returning to her homeland of Wales to write and to sing. Her work includes plays, children's books and TV scripts. Gwyneth was Wales' National Poet Laureate for Children 2006-2007. She won the BBC Radio Cymru Rock and Pop award for best female artist in 2006. Her third album 'Cainc' was released in 2011.
