Ffynnon and Other Events

Thanks to Jeremy of  Poitin , I was able to get to know this wonderful Welsh band called Ffynnon. If you look   at the individual bio of these guys, you’ll know that though they perform traditional Welsh music, they all have been trained in Classical, Jazz and World Music. Each has his or her own collaborative project with other musicians, extending the branches of the band’s repertoire into heights of musical discoveries.

What I like about Ffynnon, is that they are not an exclusive instrumental band. The mesmerizing voice of lead vocalist Lynne Denman will move even the most jaded listeners as the band embellish the tracks in gossamer but oftentimes challenging instrumentations.

Here the samples here: http://www.ffynnon.com/music.php

Lynne Denman:singer

Stacey Blythe: accordion, harp, whistle, vocals, piano, harpsichord

Chris O’Connor: double bass

Oliver Wilson-Dickson: fiddle

Mark O’Connor: drums/percussion
