Programme:
Whole 2018 album ‘Soar’
Selected tracks from 2013 album ‘Clychau Dibon’

Internationally renowned Welsh harpist Catrin Finch & Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita offer a multi award-winning collaboration. Drawing deep on their own diverse traditions and transforming them with remarkable synergy, Catrin and Seckou have built a formidable reputation for their extraordinary performances. Following the success of their debut album ‘Clychau Dibon’ in 2013, their long-awaited second album ‘SOAR’ released in April 2018, followed by a UK tour throughout spring and autumn.

These two adventurous virtuoso musicians deliver an extraordinary performance. Their second album Soar was released in April 2018 – described as “sublimely beautiful”, Mark Radcliffe BBC Radio 2, and “absolutely hypnotic”, Guy Garvey, BBC Radio 6 Music. The album has reached No 3 on the Transglobal World Music Chart June 2018.

Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita’s second album SOAR has just won the prestigious fRoots Critics Poll Album of the Year 2018.

This is the second win for the duo, whose debut album, Clychau Dibon, was awarded the fRoots Critics Poll Album of The Year back in 2013.

“We’re just delighted. To have won this award twice is just incredible. We’ve had such a great response to the album this year. Just to be nominated was brilliant enough!”, says Catrin.

“This is a wonderful surprise”, says Seckou Keita, who also produced the album. “There are never any guarantees on how a second album will be received, so we had no expectations.”

 

Delicious food and drink is available at all concerts as well as a limited number of post concert suppers at the nearby Old Vicarage where you can dine with the musicians. Go to the HOSPITALITY page for details…
