A stunning shared musical journey between two world class virtuosos: Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and West African kora player Seckou Keita. From Casamance in Senegal, Seckou Keita’s performance at Lakeside last year was described by audience members as ‘exhilarating and life-affirming’. Harpist Catrin Finch is one of the world’s finest players of this most Welsh of instruments. The cultures of West Africa and Wales share the centuries-old bardic tradition of intricate oral history expressed through music, song and verse. ‘Old Welsh harp songs, Manding kora staples, Latin dashes, Celtic arias and more woven together to create something new that also possessed enough depth to sound sage, even timeless.’ Andy Morgan The concert finishes at approximately 10pm
