A THEATR MWLDAN | ASTAR ARTES CO-PRODUCTION
2013 has been an amazing year for welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita. Winners of the prestigious fRoots Album Of The Year for their debut album Clychau Dibon, nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for Best Duo and Best Traditional Track, and featured in Songlines Magazine top ten albums of 2013, the sky is indeed the limit for this fearless pair of virtuoso musicians whose ‘heavenly music…intricately realised’ (Songlines Magazine) and infectious onstage chemistry defies categorisation and continues to merge the boundaries between the genres of classical, world, folk and traditional music. The pair also impressed international delegates with a stunning showcase at WOMEX 2013 before embarking on an 18 date UK tour.
2014 sees them guest alongside Eliza Carthy, Jim Moray and Chris Wood at fRoots 35th anniversary celebrations at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Londons Southbank in March, before a major UK tour in May which will take in Usher Hall Edinburgh, Bush Hall London and the Sage Gateshead before hitting the summer festival circuit in the UK and overseas.
Their debut album has attracted huge critical acclaim and a clutch of 4 and 5 * reviews from National and Industry press:
“intricate, ethereal and entrancing, an elaborate pas-de-deux… remarkable” UNCUT Magazine’s Neil Spence
” a sublime duo of two artists who are masters of their instruments…musicality and architecture at work” Simon Broughton, London Evening Standard *****
“remarkable…an elegant, gently exquisite set” Robin Denselow, The Guardian ****
Don’t miss your chance to see one of the most blissful and exciting music collaborations ever to come out of Wales.
