Roots Unearthed: Lleuwen

Details

Lleuwen Steffan was brought up to the sound of words and music, being the daughter of singer-composer Steve Eaves, and she sang on some of his recordings as a young girl. She also gained valuable experience at Ysgol Glanaethwy, the school at Bangor renowned for its choirs, but Lleuwen was always keen to broaden her musical horizons and develop her own unique voice. This she did with the jazz group Acoustique and her first solo albums Duw A Wyr and Penmon, all of which were critically acclaimed.

She moved to Brittany, where she became engrossed in the musical traditions of that Celtic country, and learnt the Breton language. She worked with songstress Norwen Korbel, and also with the bassist Vincent Guerin, and together they composed songs and experimented with new sounds which resulted in the album Tân, released simultaneously in Brittany and Wales.

Twisting ancient hymns to her own compositions, her latest recording Gwn Glân Beibl Budr (Clean Gun Dirty Bible) takes the Welsh hymn book and throws it into the Age of Misinformation. Live, raw and often improvised, Lleuwen brought an extremely varied mix of musicians together to create her most rooted and experimental album to date. Musically and lyrically, Gwn Glân Beibl Budr explores polar opposites: addiction and spirituality; violent guitar strumming with angelic vocals; disconnection in the era of connectivity.

Performing live with the band, this is an unmissable opportunity to witness a performance of this powerful and moving album.
