Delyth Jenkins

Celtic harp, cardic harc, piano



Delyth Jenkins plays Welsh traditional music on the Celtic harp, although it is perhaps her own compositions that have made the most lasting impression. Starting her career with the folk band Cromlech, she went on to form the pioneering instrumental trio Aberjaber. She plays in a duo with her daughter Angharad Jenkins on fiddle, and has collaborated with story-tellers, poets and dancers. Her book ‘That Would Be Telyn’ recounts her remarkable 186 mile walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, taking her small harp with her and giving a series of impromptu pathside concerts to walkers along the way.
