Description

"Trosnant is the third album from Allan Yn Y Fan a band rapidly maturing into Wales' best Celtic band of the 21st Century. Informed but not limited by their solid foundation in the musical traditions of Wales, "Trosnant" sees the maturing of Allan Yn Y Fan from "Wales best Twmpath Band" (BBC Radio 2) into Wales' best Celtic band of the 21st Century. Already acclaimed for their joyous interpretations of some of Wales' best traditional tunes and the fine compositions of its band members, now Allan Yn Y Fan turn their attention to some of the Welsh tradition's finest songs. With new singer/fiddle player Meriel Field, Allan Yn Y Fan now add their vocal harmonies to her exquisite lead voice. From the delicate sound of a Welsh lullaby "Si Hei Lwli Mabi" to AYYF's distinctive interpretation of one of Wales best-loved melodies, "Ar Hyd Y Nos", each of the twelve tracks on "Trosnant" makes a profound impression. As on previous albums, the band members showcase their multi-instrumental skills throughout, and on the title track (composed by Kate Strudwick) stretch out to include a string quartet! Chris Jones (accordionist) has composed three tunes for this release including a spirited melody for the band's caller - Ms. Gina Morgan. In summation this is the richest, most wide-ranging and complete album from this highly talented quintet.
