UK: Gwilym Simcock News

with Kizzy Crawford and Sinfonia Cymru

Album Launch date in London Thursday 10th May 2018
Last year Gwilym was commissioned to write a suite with Welsh singer Kizzy Crawford about the beautiful RSPB bird reserve at Carngafallt in mid Wales. The music fuses soul, jazz, classical, folk and features some great players from Sinfonia Cymru. The resultant tour was a great success and Hampstead Arts Festival were so inspired by the performance that they offered to help fund a recording. The recording process started in September at Curtis Schwartz's studio in West Sussex and will be released in the Spring of next year on Basho Records. A launch date has been set for Thursday 10th May at St John's Downshire Hill in Hampstead.  Tickets are available NOW.
