Calan - Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life

This international award winning band from Wales are back on the road with their infectious rhythms and high energy routines to celebrate the release of their latest album-Solomon They come with accordion, harp, guitar, fiddles and Welsh bagpipes along with a virtuoso performance from a champion step dancer.  

A fresh and vibrant sound with a pounding beat set against the backdrop of old traditions. Songs include the legend of Wales’ very own fairy realm with a tale of magic, myth and mischief along with some of the most beautiful and haunting melodies.  

They have introduced a new generation to Welsh music – and continue to do so as they tour Europe, North America, Australia and Asia.  

‘.....a diverse ride between giddy Welsh reeling, healthy acoustic folk-pop with upfront attitude and brashness of youth.” FROOTS

“…there’s nowt as dear as folk – especially when played with the grace, daring and sheer joy this multi- instrumental five-piece bring to a winning selection of reels, jigs and hornpipes”
THE MIRROR

“Folk just got a kick up of the Noughties... ..stunning use of instrumentation, gorgeously crafted songs, sprightly foot-tappers, verve and raw excitement”
BELFAST TELEGRAPH

We saw them go down an absolute storm at Cropredy a few years ago.  They've been on my 'must book' list ever since....  Those that came to the Kingston Barn a few years ago to see The Blair Dunlop Trio will remember their beautiful fiddle player Angharad Jenkins.   Debs -Folk in the Barn
