Calan: A Mythical Musical Odyssey

Plus support from The Marcellas

Wed 27 Nov 2024

Immerse yourself in an enchanting world as the mesmerising quartet Calan  grace our stage with their unique brand of power-folk.

With support from The Marcellas in a 30 min set before the interval.

This musical odyssey combines original tunes and songs with ancient melodies unearthed from the National Library of Wales. Join us for an extraordinary evening featuring tracks from their highly anticipated album, ‘Nefydd’.

Internationally acclaimed CALAN emerge with a new, captivating narrative; ancient tales of Welsh mythology are meticulously brought to life, transcending the pages of folklore to resonate through the enchanting melodies of harp, guitar, fiddle, accordion, and song. ‘Nefydd’ tells stories of murderous princes, thieving highwaymen and the triumphant resurgence of the heart of Welsh folklore.

Calan’s versatility is legendary in itself. From intimate house concerts to the grandiose Royal Albert Hall, Calan have become modern day folk heroes themselves. They also notably graced operatic superstar Sir Bryn Terfel’s most recent album, marking their triumphant return to the musical forefront.
