Gwdihŵ launches new folk night

Nansi Richards

Cardiff music venue Gwdihŵ is adding another string to its bow with the introduction of a new monthly folk night.

Cwpwrdd Nansi (loosely translated as ‘Nancy’s Cupboard’) is named after Wales’ most famous triple harpist Nansi Richards, and aims to reignite the Cardiff folk scene. Organiser Angharad Jenkins said that she set up the night after become frustrated by the lack of opportunities for Welsh folk musicians.

“Often the Welsh folk music scene isn’t taken seriously. Cwpwrdd Nansi will hopefully show people the wealth and variety that folk music in Wales has to offer by programming high-quality acts, as well as offering a platform for new and emerging artists.”

The first Cwpwrdd Nansi will take place at Gwdihŵ on Wednesday 21 November: tickets will cost £5.
