CD A0046: Kaingk

Bob Evans (crwth / lyre) | Mary-Anne Roberts (voice)

CD coverA unique, double disc collection of medieval and later Welsh music and poetry performed and reconstructed by Robert Evans (crwth and lyre) with the highly distinctive voice of Mary-Anne Roberts. Drawing extensively from the Robert ap Huw Manuscript it also contains bonus DVD video tracks.

“Medieval and Renaissance Welsh poetry performed in all its glory, may not, on paper, sound like the most enthralling prospect. But believe me, when it’s done by the Cardiff-based duo Bragod – it is.” Verity Sharp, BBC Music Magazine
