Owen Shiers

Traverse the valleys of Wales with the mesmerising sounds of Owen Shiers.

Owen is a native of Ceredigion in West Wales and grew up surrounded by the sonorous tones drifting from his father’s harp workshop as well as age old traditions such as the Eisteddfod and Calan Hen. He is an accomplished guitarist and composer and has been working for the Astar music label since 2009, absorbing and integrating the sounds and flavours of various indigenous musics into his own work. His current projects include the AMJ Collective, The Trad Academy Sea Shanty Choir and his Welsh language project ‘Madog’.”
