World-class harpist plays magical Garden setting
An award-winning harpist will be providing enchanting entertainment for people visiting Bodnant Garden on Sunday 29th July.
Harpist Dylan Cernyw has won in the National Eisteddfod three times and accompanied opera singer Bryn Terfel, soprano Kathryn Jenkins, and X-Factor star Rhydian Roberts at concerts around the UK.
More recently Dylan travelled to Shaoxing, China with pupils from Ysgol Glanaethwy performing arts school in Bangor, competing in the World Choir Olympics. Dylan sang with the senior choir and accompanied the youth choir on the harp.
Dylan, from Colwyn Bay, said: “I’m looking forward to playing in such a magical setting. The harp is an ideal accompaniment for people wandering through the garden, enjoying its gentle sounds while taking in the gorgeous sights and scents they have this time of year
Dylan has won in the National Eisteddfod in 1989, 1991 and 1994, also a winner in the Cerdd Dant Festival in 1992. He has travelled the world, playing in France, Germany, Holland, Canada, Prague, Switzerland, Paris and Ireland as a soloist and accompanist.
He appeared in the 1,000 voices Festival at the Royal Albert Hall where he was a guest soloist and shared a platform with Soprano Rebecca Evans.
Dylan will be playing his harp in the Garden’s Pin Mill from 2-4pm.
