Awen Ensemble

Band on the Wall (bar stage)

Amy Clark voice / Emyr Penry Dance trumpet, flugelhorn / Saul Duff tenor saxophone / Ruari Graham guitars / Glen Leach Fender Rhodes / Joe Wilkes double bass / Eddie Bowes drums, bodhrán 

Awen, meaning ‘poetic inspiration’ in Welsh, marks the band’s intention to explore folkloric heritage, landscape and the human mind, inspiring audiences to reflect on and connect with these subjects. Playing both vocal-led and instrumental work, the band takes inspiration from the modal tradition, spiritual jazz and folk music across the globe; they use spoken word, shimmering instrumentation and a Celtic mystique to create compositions that are melodically focused and groovedriven.
