Angharad Davies is a Welsh violinist working with free-improvisation, compositions and performance. Her approach to sound involves attentive listening and exploring beyond the sonic confines of her instrument, her classical training and performance expectation.
Much of her work involves collaboration. She has long standing duos with Tisha Mukarji, Dominic Lash and Lina Lapelyte and plays with Apartment House, Cranc, Common Objects, Richard Dawson's band and Skogen. She has been involved in projects with Tarek Atui, Tony Conrad, Laura Cannell, Jack McNamara, Eliane Radigue, Juliet Stephenson and J.G.Thirlwell.
She has released records on Absinth Records, Another Timbre, Potlatch and Confrontrecords. Her album Ffansion | Fancies was voted in the top 12 albums for Radio 3's Late Junction.
Over the last decade, C Joynes has ploughed a singular furrow through solo guitar, with a body of work incorporating English folk-tunes alongside North & West African music, and lifting proto-minimalist and improvised techniques from the European classical tradition.
Joynes has released 8 albums to date, including ‘The Borametz Tree’ (2019), recorded with long-term fellow travellers Dead Rat Orchestra, and ‘The Wild Wild Berry’, a collaboration with singer Stephanie Hladowski (fROOTS Editors Choice Album Of The Year 2012, MOJO Top 5 Folk Albums 2012). He has played extensively across the UK, Europe and the USA, sharing bills with performers including: Shirley Collins, Martin Carthy, Comus, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Alasdair Roberts, Richard Dawson, Jack Rose, Glenn Jones, Josephine Foster, Sir Richard Bishop, Six Organs Of Admittance and 75 Dollar Bill.
“As much Conlon Nancarrow and Ali Farka Toure as Blind Lemon Jefferson, the compositional mind at work here can take apparently disparate threads of modernism and ethnic tradition and treat them as though they were all archaic blues styles learnt from dusty 78s.”

newCELF : FLUXUS 2019
newCELF are a Cardiff-based multidisciplinary art events organisation who pair modern classics with new commissions. During 2019 they have been championing the 1960s performance art Fluxus. Exploration of early Fluxus works led to a call for works, the submissions of which will be toured around Wales in September. The aim of the project is to highlight the legacy and continuing relevance of Fluxus in relation to practising artists across a variety of fields.
newCELF will present a selection of works as part of their FLUXUS2019 project.
Y Pregethwr (voice and harmonium) sings the book of Ecclesiastes with music and melodies inspired by High and Medieval church, the street music and sounds of Andalusia and Marrakesh, delivered with the spirit of The Penticost.
