Birdsong / Can Yr Adar Album Out 13th April
The long awaited album with Kizzy Crawford and Gwilym with the Sinfonia Cymru is out next month and albums can be pre-ordered now at Jazzcds. More information and links to samples on the Birdsong page.
Birdsong – Cân yr Adar is a collaboration between jazz pianist/composer Gwilym Simcock, singer/songwriter Kizzy Crawford and award winning orchestra Sinfonia Cymru, which fuses jazz, classical and soul-folk music through a collection of spellbinding bilingual songs inspired by the ancient forests of Carngafallt in Powys.
There is a Celtic rainforest that lives and breathes in Wales. Birdsong / Cân Yr Adar tells a story through music inspired by RSPB Carngafallt, home to a complex ecosystem, which makes up some of the country’s rainforest territory and can be found near Powys.
