One of the greatest myths of Celtic mythology, this ancient Welsh story has an intimate relationship with the landscape where it is set as well as the landscape of the human soul. It is a story of magical transformation, extreme characters, wildness, fury and longing.
The story is rooted in a deep dream logic that still talks to us directly many centuries after its composition. This version is performed by Michael Harvey and the singer and composer Pauline Down and was premiered at the 2017 Festival at the Edge, where it was given a standing ovation – and then at Harlech Castle (where parts of the story are set) with Beyond the Border.
“Michael Harvey and Pauline Down with the sublime ‘Branwen’. Quality storytelling and song with heart, power and charm …”
“Branwen entrances from the first word until the final spell is cast … a whole world of marvel, mystery and humour is evoked through story and song.”
