Music from René Griffiths – Guitar, Voice, Passion | 5.15pm
René Griffiths was born in Patagonia of Welsh ancestors and sings in Welsh and Spanish. A songwriter, singer and guitarist, René’s mixed cultural and musical heritage has resulted in a unique Patagonian hybrid of Argentine rhythms and traditional Celtic music. He is an actor in Welsh film and television and author of the book Ramblings of a Patagonian (2014). Iwan Bala is an established artist, writer and lecturer, exhibiting widely in Wales and abroad. Iwan has published extensively on Welsh contemporary art and for this year’s Eisteddfod, he has curated A Language (is only words), at BayArt in Bute Street, Cardiff. A symposium linked to the exhibition takes place at the gallery on Wed, 8th Aug, at 3pm.
