Mainly through the medium of Welsh … but can also perform in English

Traditional Folk songs are my main focus as a singer but I do also compose and sing my own original songs

I play the harp, including the triple harp, guitar and bass guitar and the recorder family ….

Over the years I have performed all over Wales and beyond, in halls, theatres, festivals, castles, museums,folk clubs, libraries, hotels …..

I have won the Lady Herbert Lewis Memorial Prize – for the open Folk Singing Competition at the National Eisteddfod, and also the Elfed Lewis Memorial Prize for the singing of a ballad.

I was one of the singers who was part of the Ffylantin-tw project – the Tradition’s tribute to Meredydd Evans and Phyllis Kinney.

I occasionally perform as part of a trio with Arfon Gwilym and Sioned Webb

As a storyteller I tell traditional tales, stories and legends about the Welsh giants and fairies, about heroes and villains, about odd happening and strange beasts. I have a lap harp and she helps me to illustrate the stories with traditional tunes and song.

I also offer workshops – workshops about our Welsh traditions and celebrations and visit schools to present traditional playground games and new original games based on some of our well known legends and songs.
