Ceri Rhys Matthews Performs with Ceri Ashton & Members of Sild [Live at Folklife Festival 2009]
Ceri Rhys Matthews performs with Ceri Ashton and members of Sild, Martin Leamon and Sille Ilves, as part of the Welsh program at the 2009 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall in Washington, DC. They appear on the Smithsonian Folkways album 'Blodeugerdd,' a compilation of Welsh folk music produced in conjunction with the 2009 Festival. 'Blodeugerdd: Song of the Flowers - An Anthology of Welsh Music and Song' is available on CD and digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: Spotify: Wales, a country as ancient as it is forward-looking, boasts a wealth of contemporary musicians who harvest the best of their past to craft an artful future. 'Blodeugerdd' ("song of flowers" in the Welsh language) features a garland of intimate musical interpretations by leading keepers of Welsh music today. Each track is an act of remembering something personal and an illustration of how Welsh culture, in the words of producer Ceri Rhys Matthews, "has survived by quietude and tenacity." The album has been produced with generous support from the Welsh Assembly Government.
