Calan brings together the remarkable talents of five young musicians giving a fresh and vibrant sound to traditional Welsh music.

With a contemporary and lively approach they breathe new life into the old traditions through their sparkling melodies, foot-tapping tunes and spirited and energetic performances of Welsh step dancing.

They blast their way through some of the old favourite reels, jigs and hornpipes with fast-paced and uplifting arrangements, before melting into some of the most beautiful and haunting songs.

It’s a welcome return for Calan who visited Yn Chruinnaght in 2009.

“Calan have it all. Energy, attitude, freshness, a sense of fun and above all, real talent.”
Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

Calan will be performing at the Centenary Centre on Wednesday 13 July.
