Barddair an Cheoil 2021
WORLD CURLEW DAY
8PM BST 21/04/2021
Barddair an Cheoil is a small group of poets and musicians dedicated to collaborating, writing and performing in their native languages – Irish and Welsh. All are from western Wales and the West of Ireland and all live close to the sea. They have chosen as their themes the ocean and estuaries, the changes brought about there by climate change, and the creatures threatened by these changes.
They have already begun to develop new material and to record, and hope to tour in Wales and Ireland towards the end of this year, performing indoors and in the open air, and working in schools. In the meantime, they are releasing a first digital performance, free to air, to promote and celebrate World Curlew Day on 21st April this year, in association with Echoes and RSPB. This will raise awareness of environmental issues and contributions will be invited to the appropriate charities.
