THE ROOTS OF WELSH TRADITIONAL MUSIC


Patrick Rimes is an extraordinarily talented and versatile multi-instrumentalist, at home in Welsh traditional music, contemporary classical music and early music. In this entertaining lecture recital Kannig introduce us to the fascinating history of Wales’s music, from ancient three-part carols in the Montgomeryshire Plygain tradition to airs and variations by Edward Jones and John Thomas, harpists to the Prince Regent and Queen Victoria.  Kannig (old Welsh for ‘they sing’) is a new venture exploring Welsh music through the lens of early music and period instruments – including the magnificent triple harp, a Welsh survival of the Italian Baroque harp.
