Gwenan Gibbard stands at the forefront of today’s thriving Welsh traditional music scene with her unique, contemporary arrangements of Welsh traditional music and songs. She also specialises in the unique art of ‘Cerdd Dant’, the ancient form of singing Welsh poetry to the accompaniment of the harp, and is one of the few people who perform this music self-accompanied on the harp. She has released three solo albums on the Sain label, her most recent, ‘Cerdd Dannau’, is an unique and exciting album which explores a new perspective on the tradition of ‘Cerdd Dant’. Her newly released EP ‘Y Gorwel Porffor’ explores the cultural and musical connections between Wales and Patagonia (the Welsh settlement in Argentina).
