Trumpeter Tomos Williams has assembled a cast of brilliant Welsh musicians to perform The Cwmwl Tystion Suite, a new work incorporating elements of jazz, the avant-garde, improvisation and Welsh folk.
The name 'Cwmwl Tystion' is derived from a poem by the great Welsh poet Waldo Williams - the music 'bares witness' to these complex and difficult times. This will be the first time Huw Warren (Quercus) and Rhodri Davies (Hen Ogledd), both leaders in their field and musicians of international reputation, perform together, while Mark O'Connor, Huw V Williams and Francesca Simmons all bring unique contributions to the project. Simon Proffitt will also be accompanying the performances with live visuals, interacting with the music in real time.
'The Cwmwl Tystion Suite' has been funded by Tŷ Cerdd, and the tour is made possible by generous Arts Council of Wales financial support.
