Welsh music: the new essential ingredient


Believed to be
the first of its kind in Wales, Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority has
teamed up with Medwrn and Tourism Partnership Mid Wales to offer a free course
for tourism businesses to help them select Welsh music to play in their
restaurants, pubs, hotels and bed and breakfast rooms.

The free
course is being held on Thursday 7th February at the National Park
Visitor Centre, near Libanus.  Leading
the day is Ceri Rhys Matthews, a renowned flutist, piper and guitarist, highly
regarded as one of Wales’ finest and most innovative folk musicians.  Playing live and recorded music, he has
designed the course to give music lovers and tourism businesses an informal
introduction to Welsh music – both traditional and contemporary.

Williams, Tourism Growth Officer for Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority
said:  “With local food firmly in place on
Welsh menus our attentions are now turning to Welsh music that’s available to
tourism businesses.  This is a unique
Welsh course designed to help businesses identify music that promotes their
individuality and cultural heritage.”
