CATRIN O'NEILL


Catrin O'Neill was surrounded by traditional Welsh music and culture growing up in Aberdyfi in Snowdonia, but her adult life has exposed her to many new influences."I took my guitar and had five years of travel," she says. "I produced children's cabaret shows in the depths of China and was a chorus line dancer in the Bollywood film industry in India, among other things."

Now settled back in Wales, she has spent the past four years, as she says, "song writing, learning new instruments and rediscovering my undying passion for Welsh and other Celtic folk music".

Along with the traditional music, Catrin is writing her own original material in both English and Welsh.


She plays solo but more often as a duo or as part of a four piece incorporating harp, fiddle, bouzouki, pipes and whistle.


She is currently recording a studio version of her album 'Nain's Kitchen' with John Perkins, to follow a recent limited 'festival edition' released to fans at festival appearances through the summer.

Review from FATEA Magazine below: Any album with a song about drinking hard cider has got something going for it. Catrin O'Neill has put together an album of traditional classics and contemporary gems that I guess she's hoping will add to their number. "Nain's Kitchen" is an album of stoves and crock pots rather than ovens and bowls, songs of the people, not the peers, but delightfully practical with nothing going to waste. O'Neill herself can turn her voice from songs, sang almost angelically in Gaelic to rough drinking songs that seem to put you over the drink drive limit just by listening. Refreshingly direct.
