Catrin Finch - a Saint David's Day Treat

















This fabulous, exciting and high-profile harp-based international music project combines the awesome talent of Catrin Finch (Cymru/Wales), regarded as one of the world's leading harp players and classical crossover success, with Cimarron (Colombia), a seven piece llanera group led by harpist and composer Carlos Rojas, and drawn from the metizo people that inhabit the savannahs of the great Orinoco river.
Cartin Finch and Cimarron first met each other in Caernarfon, Wales in November 2007. During an intense four days, they exchanged and developped tunes and songs from each other's native culture, each being led by the other's harp tradition. Traditional Colombian rhythms saw the injection of Catrin's stunning virtuosity, whilst traditional Welsh melodies became infused with a vibrant latin identity.


This was our special Saint David's Day treat (thanks to a lovely Christmas Theatre gift token from Birmingham) at Theatr Hafren here in Y Drenewydd. What we love about going to the theatre here is that we can be home in 5 minutes, drinking our bedtime hot chocolate!
