A Theatr Mwldan Production

Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita

Plus support from Gwyneth Glyn & band

This sublime, critically acclaimed and multi award-winning collaboration between two adventurous virtuoso musicians - Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita - delivers a stunning exhibition of musicianship.

Drawing deep on their own diverse traditions and transforming them with remarkable synergy, Catrin and Seckou have built a formidable reputation for extraordinary performances. Following the huge success of their debut release Clychau Dibon back in 2013, they recently released their long-awaited second album SOAR. The album takes flight on the wings of the osprey, the magnificent bird of prey recently returned to Wales after centuries of absence, which makes its annual 3000-mile migration from the coasts of West Africa to the estuaries of Wales, soaring like music and dreams over man-made borders, on its innate and epic journey of endurance.

Entrancing, mesmeric and ethereal, this is remarkable music and a thrilling live experience.

Catrin and Seckou will be joined by Gwyneth Glyn as support artist. Poet, writer and singer of songs, Gwyneth comes from Cricieth in North Wales and will be performing material from her new album Tro with band members Rowan Rheingans, Dylan Fowler and Gillian Stevens.

The communication has reached a point of seamlessness. It’s hard to tell where the harp ends and the kora begins...one flowing musical conversation
