W17 The Welsh 'Penillion' Tradition

Gwenan Gibbard

Merchiston Workshops - Workshop Space

Workshop

Come and hear about the unique and ancient Welsh tradition of Penillion or 'cerdd dant' - a form of singing poetry to harp accompaniment. In Wales there has always been a very close relationship between music and poetry and this workshop will give you a glimpse into this centuries old practice which is still very much alive in Wales today. 

Supported by the Transpennine Branch of The Clarsach Society.
