This is the second solo CD from Llio Rhydderch and features music on the Welsh triple harp, played in her own inimitable style. Llio is becoming very well known in the traditional music world and has worked with very well-known Irish musician Donal Lunny on a millennium TV programme which was seen worldwide, produced by RTE. This CD is indeed a progression from Telyn. In the words of Andrew Cronshaw, Folk Roots: '... in Llio Rhydderch resides the living tradition of the old Welsh harpers in all its glory...in this enormously skillful, brilliantly creative player of the triple harp.'
