Anita Botman Welsh music on the flute isn't very common. But it suits so well! The tunes are beautiful and haunting and the flute playing inspiring and exquisite!

music on wooden flute from west and south wales

— awel bren dyfed a deheubarth —

played by ceri rhys matthews. spoken word by beverley evans. fiddle by christine cooper

dance tunes, airs, poetry and free verse.

“the album is a delicious mix of traditional melodies, ambient sounds and spoken word” Verity Sharp - Late Junction - BBC radio 3

fernhill’s ceri rhys matthews has released an album of flute music and spoken word called yscolan. it features traditional dance melodies and song airs from south and west wales played solo on wooden flute juxtaposed with extracts of early welsh poetry, spoken word elements and contemporary poetry in both welsh and english read by beverley evans.

fiercely contemporary, yscolan explores the nature of art and the role of the artist, challenging the modernist interpretation of the artist as a central ego working in social and historical isolation.

this haunting piece of work celebrates the fabric of the lives of ordinary people, living and dead, as expressed through their anonymous art, by the inheritors of their legacy.
