Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


Of all the Celtic nations, traditional Welsh music is arguably the least well known. This course will introduce Welsh melodies with ideas on how to arrange them at a more detailed and advanced level.  There will also be an opportunity to learn some Welsh songs with suggestions on self-accompaniment or accompanying a singer.

Tutor: Delyth Jenkins - Delyth began her musical career in the 1970s with folk group Cromlech, and then instrumental trio Aberjaber. She has also composed and performed music for numerous theatre productions, and has collaborated with poets and story tellers. Her latest collaboration is with her daughter Angharad Jenkins, together often known by their initials DnA. As well as playing in various groups, Delyth has also released four solo albums and has published several collections of her own compositions and arrangements of traditional Welsh tunes.
