Welsh Music and Poetry

Monday, June 01, 2009

In March, Marymount’s Celtic Heritage Center sponsored an evening of Welsh music and poetry, featuring author and singer/songwriter Flur Dafydd and award-winning poet and novelist Owen Shears. The event gave the MU community a preview of the delights that will be on hand this summer when the Smithsonian Folklife Festival presents Cymru (Wales). Ms. Dafydd first shared her own poems and songs with the MU audience, then provided a musical counterpoint to the moving images of Mr. Shears’ poetry and stories.
