Track of the Week




Hen Ogledd take their name from the phrase for the Old North, the Celtic region comprising Southern Scotland and Northern England in early Middle Ages Britain. The band members - harpist Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell, Sally Pilkington, and Richard Dawson - all hail "from historically different tribal regions of the Old North". The group defy the orthodoxy of exploring mystical customs with acoustic instruments; instead they celebrate the paradoxes and similarities of the ancient and modern through melody, technology and "return-journey time travel".
