Plus Special Guest: Gwilym Bowen Rhys

Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life when CALAN, the energetic young folk band from Wales, take to the stage.

They breathe fire into the old traditions with their infectious rhythms and high voltage routines before melting into some of the most beautiful and haunting songs as they explore the legends of Wales’ very own fairy realm with tales of magic, myth and mischief.

They have introduced a new generation of music fans to Welsh traditional music – and continue to do so as they tour across Wales, throughout the UK, Europe, North America and beyond.

Great fun, a huge sense of humour, and step-dancing from a champion dancer makes for an outstanding show.

Running Time: 2hrs inc. interval

‘.....a diverse ride between giddy Welsh reeling, healthy acoustic folk-pop with upfront attitude and brashness of youth.” FROOTS
