Calan

"A Storming juggernaut of cool power-folk with a jaw-dropping repertoire. You can't help but marvel at their astounding musicianship."  Folk Wales    

In their first major post-lockdown tour one of Britain’s most innovative and thrilling bands will showcase their critically acclaimed new album Kistvaen. Recorded just before the pandemic, live performances of the album were suspended… until now.

Expect intricate, captivating melodies and mesmerising harmonies underpinned with foot-stamping, crowd-pleasing rhythms. Calan’s bewildering array of instruments includes guitars, fiddles, bagpipes, harps, accordions, vocals… and, likely as not, world-class step and clog dancing.


In a brief break during those lockdowns, the band performed with the National Orchestra of Wales and, last Christmas, a worldwide online concert from Brecon Cathedral with opera giant Sir Bryn Terfel and organised by New York’s Metropolitan Opera House.


Now, with Britain emerging into a brighter 2022, Calan are getting their dancing feet back in gear. “We hope people will listen to Kistvaen and come to hear it live,” adds Bethan Rhiannon. “It’s how it was always meant to be. And now, at last, it can be.”


“Calan reach out beyond folk,” says Folk Radio UK, “breathing fire into old traditions with infectious, high voltage performances.”


“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
