A new take on Welsh Music including new music and arrangements of hymns and folksongs.
Huw Warren is one of Wales' most creative and eclectic musicians, with a presence on the home and international jazz stages. His projects are always personal -- exploratory, yet fun and accessible -- and typically combine strands of jazz, world music and contemporary classical sounds into a coherent whole.
Previous collaborations include June Tabor, Perfect Houseplants, Maria Pia de Vito, Mark Feldman and Peter Herbert as well as an album of Welsh hymns (Duw y Wyr) in 2004. His latest recording (with Quercus) is released on ECM in 2013.
For this special gig as part of BrynFest, Huw is joined by Neil Yates, a real trumpet innovator, fusing Celtic inflections with jazz lyricism to produce a unique and compelling sound.
