Note

Allan Yn Y Fan "Lle Arall / Another Place"
Label: Steam Pie Records; 2010

Renowned Welsh folk band Allan Yn Y Fan and leading Welsh Celtic harpist Delyth Jenkins have co-produced a five track EP with traditional songs and tunes as well as the hauntingly beautiful title track, a wonderful air composed by Kate Strudwick (vocals, flute, recorders) that literally transports you to another place. Allan Yn Y Fan also include lead singer and fiddler Meriel Field, Linda Simmonds (vocals, mandolin, bodhràn), Chris Jones (accordion, flute, whistles) and Geoff Cripps (guitar, bass).
Field sings the mesmerizing traditional ballad "Mil Harddach Wyt" to the sensitive harp playing of Jenkins before the others join in. Following up a set of rhythmic choir singing (Hen Ferchetan) and an intoxicating tune (Coleg Y Brifysgol Abertawe), brought forward with passion and virtuosity. Jenkins' solo performance on the amazing instrumental track "Llwytgoed/Owen's Jig/Bedd Y Morwr" is awesome. Last but not least Jenkins adds her superb harp playing to another for me unpronounceable dance set "Mwmpwy Portheinon/Breuddwyd y Wrach/Pibddawns Owen Huw".
An unfortunately short but striking sample of Welsh folk music. Brilliant musicians and fine singers found together to offer a taste of their outstanding music.
