Audience with the ‘Queen’

Audience with the ‘Queen’

The queen of traditional Welsh music is playing at the National Botanic Garden on Sunday March 3.

Siân James is musician, harpist and icon. Surrounded by music from an early age, she is now the owner of “an achingly pure voice” (according to the late, great John Peel).

She has a well of musical material from eight fine albums to draw on as well as a love of all kinds of everything.

Says Siân: “My love of traditional music is integral to my being. I have a great love of all kinds of music but traditional songs have become a wondrous force from which I cannot escape.

“The songs and music of my country are my haven from the bedlam of life.”

Share her haven for a short while in the Great Glasshouse from 1pm, the final event in the Garden’s  Celtic Women Winter Concert Series.

Admission to the Garden is £8.50 (concessions £7) for adults and £4.50 for children. For more information about this or other events, call 01558 667149, email  or go to

The Garden is open from 10am to 4.30pm (last entry 3.30pm).
