Bio

“Angharad Jenkins is a fiddle player and composer from Swansea. She began learning the violin at the age of six through the Suzuki method, and continued with her classical training (with Andrew Griffiths) until the age of 16, graduating with a first class honours from Oxford Brookes University in 2008. Returning to Swansea, she formed a duo with her mother, the harpist Delyth Jenkins. The release of their debut album Adnabod, in May 2013 on the fflach:tradd label generated great praise and critical acclaim, and was shortlisted for Welsh Album of the Year in 2014. Patrick Rimes is a fiddle player, piper and composer/arranger born and raised in Bethesda, North West Wales. After starting to learn the fiddle aged 7, Patrick was quickly drawn into the thriving scene of traditional music sessions in Bangor. He was twice named junior fiddle champion of Wales, and remains the only person to have won the coveted ‘blue ribbon’ award at Anglesey Eisteddfod for a traditional music performance. Following periods of study at both the University of Leeds and Janáckova Akademie Múzických v Brne (Czech Republic) Patrick currently divides his time between the Royal Welsh College in Cardiff (where he studies viola with David Adams) and a busy international gigging schedule.”
