"I have noticed wetter, warmer winters compared to 25 years ago. Fairly regularly I hear people and media talking about climate change. I’m in ClimateKeys because music can be a great way to complement difficult and dense topics such as climate change. The change in content often gives space to digest what has been said and speaks to us on a different level." (Owen Shiers, Cynefin)


Welsh folk music

CYNEFIN (kuh-neh-vin) is the musical brainchild of Clettwr valley native Owen Shiers and is a journey to discover the musical landscape and contours of Ceredigion and West Wales. Following a chance discovery of a long forgotten song by a local ballad singer, Owen was inspired to uncover more of the untold stories of the locals who’s voices have been lost over the centuries. A research scholarship from the Finzi Trust has further aided the project, enabling him to delve through unseen archive material, look through rare books as well as source songs from ballad singers and cultural historians. From the grumbles of millers past, musings of balladeers to the every day tales of ‘y werin’ (the common folk) – the resulting material is unique both in its originality (some of the songs have not been sung for over hundreds of years) but also in the arrangements which are ambitious and distinct

JULIA MARQUES is a climate change dramatist based in London. She has just completed her research exploring theatre’s potential as an alternative site of meaning-making around climate change that allows people space to think about its re-presentation in the performance space.
