The Culture Bar

Speed pod: Wales

February 7, 2022

In our ​speed pod’ mini-series of quick insights into music and culture from around the world, we talk to music industry professionals about the music of their homeland, to give us a view into different music, composers, sounds and instruments which make music both unique and universal. 

In this episode, we talked to HarrisonParrott Marketing Assistant Holly Gedge to tell us more about the sounds of Wales. Holly tells us what influences there are on Welsh music, what we can expect when listening to Welsh music, and introduces us to two Welsh composers. As well as providing listeners with a wealth of musical insights, Holly also gives us her personal recommendations for a Welsh book, album and film, so we can dive deeper into understanding Welsh culture and its contribution to the world.

Holly was interviewed by HP’s Fiona Livingston.

Holly’s Recommendations:
BookRunning for the Hills by Horatio Clare 
AlbumLive at Treorchy with Max Boyce
FilmDream Horse
YouTube: Wales singing National anthem before beating England 30 – 3 in Rugby
