Folk prom: calan
Mon 23rd Jul 18 20:00 edit
Level 3 Lounge
Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life.
Calan breathe fire into the old traditions with their infectious rhythms and high voltage routines before melting into some of the most beautiful and haunting songs.
Calan play fiddles, whistles, guitar and bagpipes and a traditional reed instrument from Wales called a pibgorn made from a wooden pipe and the horns of a bull. Great fun, a sense of humour and step dancing from a champion dancer who dances in a style unique to Wales.
They have introduced a new generation of music fans to Welsh traditional music – in Wales and beyond. Audiences in Belgium, Italy and France as well as all over the UK have given them a terrific reception they are now on their fourth tour of North America.
The band began by busking in the streets of Cardiff raising money to pay for university fees. By 2015 they were performing alongside Bryn Terfel and Sting at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of Bryn Terfel’s 50th birthday party.
Calan remain the only band from Wales to win the international folk group trophy at Lorient in Brittany, France.
