Top names lined up for concert series

The Celtic Women Concert series returns to the National Botanic Garden of Wales this winter with big names from the Welsh music scene topping the bill.

One of the country’s most successful female singer/songwriters Amy Wadge kicks off the concert series on Sunday December 2. Described by no less an authority than Bob Harris as “an irresistible, riveting performer”, Amy takes to the stage of the Great Glasshouse between 1pm and 2pm.

Newcomers on the scene, Jemma Krysa and Sarah Passmore will be sharing the stage for the new year session on Sunday January 6. Both were big hits at the Garden’s Celtic Women Festival back in August and are sure to draw a big crowd during the ‘FREE admission’ January period.

Pembrokeshire-born Lowri Evans’s voice is, so they say, “like an old friend”, so her Celtic Women Concert performance on Sunday February 3 is the perfect opportunity to reacquaint yourself with this fabulous sound. The multi-talented, bi-lingual singer-songwriter is making her first appearance at the Garden.

The finale of the Celtic Women Concert Series is on Sunday March 3rd with a performance by the most celebrated and modern of traditional singers in Wales, Sian James.  Recently awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the University of Wales Bangor for her services to Welsh culture, Sian will take to the stage on Sunday March 3.

The Celtic Women Concert Series is on the first Sunday of the month and take place on the stage in the Great Glasshouse. Performances are due to start at 1pm.

The Garden is open from 10am until 4.30pm. For more information on Garden news and events, go to www.gardenofwales.org.uk  email info@gardenofwales.org.uk  or call 01558 667149.
