Cardiff-based Welsh singer-songwriter Cara Ludlow has been writing and performing music for over a decade, aged only 26 years old. Combining gently poetic lyricism and deftly finger-picked guitar, her compositions are built on the firm foundations of folk and roots, recalling the greats like Joni Mitchell, but with an authenticity that’s wholly her own.

 

She’s performed her songs across Britain and Europe, from the heart of rural Wales, to London and Amsterdam. Her serene, perceptive storytelling has a communal language, unhurried and entirely within its own ecosystem.

Mae’r gantores-gyfansoddwraig caneuon o Gymru, Cara Ludlow (a aned ym 1995) wedi bod yn cyfansoddi a pherfformio cerddoriaeth am ddegawd a mwy. Gan gyfuno telynegiaeth farddol dyner a phicio deheuig ar y gitâr, mae ei chyfansoddiadau wedi’u hadeiladu ar sylfeini cadarn cerddoriaeth werin, gan ddwyn i gof y mawrion fel Joni Mitchell, ond gyda dilysrwydd sy’n eiddo iddi hi’n unig.

 

Mae wedi perfformio ei chaneuon ym Mhrydain ac Ewrop, o berfeddion y Gymru wledig, i Lundain ac Amsterdam. Iaith gymunedol sydd i’w ffordd dawel a threiddgar o adrodd straeon – hamddenol ac yn gyfan gwbl yn ei hecosystem ei hun.
