Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


This course will introduce fiddle players to some gems from the Welsh repertoire. As well as learning traditional Welsh jigs, reels and hornpipes, there will also be an opportunity to experiment with the natural timbre of the instrument to create atmospheric soundscapes.

Tutor: Angharad Jenkins - Angharad is a fiddle player and composer, who was recently described as ‘one of the dynamos of the Welsh folk scene’, pushing the tradition into the twenty-first century. A founding member of the celebrated folk group Calan, she has toured extensively across the world and has worked with poets and artists and on theatre productions. She also plays with her mother, the harpist Delyth Jenkins, and the new Welsh ‘supergroup’ Pendevig. Whilst working for trac, the folk development organisation for Wales, she founded, currently manages and also teaches at two residential courses for young people.
