ONLINE CHRISTMAS CONCERT
SUNDAY DECEMBER 20, 19:00 GMT
Join us on the fourth of advent for an evening of Celtic and Scandinavian festive music with Marit & Rona and Gwilym Bowen Rhys on Zoom.
Gwilym hails from the village of Bethel at the foot of mount Snowdon in North West Wales. He has been singing in his native Welsh language since he can remember and has developed a deep connection with the traditional songs and music of his land. His music is a mix of old and new, bringing to life ancient Welsh lyrics and melodies with his own progressive musical approach. In 2019 he won the award for ‘best solo artist’ at the Welsh folk awards and has performed his music around the world. We look forward to hearing Gwilym perform for the first half of the concert.
Marit Fält and Rona Wilkie meld tunes and songs from their separate geographical backgrounds to create a new music that’s uplifting, daring and harmonious. They explore the rarely probed similarities between Scandinavian and Scottish Highland tunes – colouring them with songs from both traditions. Marit and Rona’s music is playful, borderless and thrilling. For this concert they have prepared a mixture of traditional Scandinavian christmas music, newly written Gaelic songs as well as some of their critically acclaimed standard repertoire. They will be playing the second half of the concert.
Bring a beverage of your choice, and join us for an evening of music, stories and festive spirit!
