About the Event

The concert will be presented by the Vale of Glamorgan Festival at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and, fittingly for the Festival and for St. David’s Day weekend connects ancient and contemporary Wales. It concert will be given by two internationally renowned artists– Jeremy Huw Williams (baritone) and Paula Fan (piano)

Their highly original programme comprises 15 new arrangements by five living composers from Wales of 15 Welsh folksongs. Many of the arrangements will be receiving their world premiere at this concert. The selection embraces very well-known songs that will be familiar to many like Dafydd y Garreg Wen (David of the White Rock) and Bugeilio’r Gwenith Gwyn (Watching the White Wheat) and fascinating ‘discoveries’ from all parts of Wales. The composers are Nathan James Dearden, John Hardy, Paul Mealor, John Metcalf and Pwyll ap Siôn .
