ONE of the most accomplished harpists of a generation will grace Llandudno with her sublime skill this month

Catrin Finch is showing her support for hospice care in a one-off concert at the Holy Trinity Church on Saturday, November 23 at 7.30pm to celebrate 20 years of care at St David’s Hospice.

Joining the critically acclaimed harpist for the evening are the harmonious voices of Côr Meibion Colwyn and Côr Glanaethwy.

A former Royal Harpist to HRH Charles, the Prince of Wales, Finch has been delighting audiences with her performances across the UK and worldwide - since the age of five both as a soloist - and appearing with many of the world’s top orchestras.

On the night, Finch, who has battled cancer personally, will be performing a mix of classic compositions based on her own inspirations. There will be songs that people will be familiar with and will have heard before, plus original pieces such as her track Clear Sky.

Finch, who recently won a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for her collaboration with Seckou Keita, said:“As a performer, I believe it is important we dedicate our time to charity and take the opportunities to help where we can. It is important to put the time and effort in causes that we all may need one day.

“Performing for St David’s Hospice is special to me following what I went through last year with my cancer diagnosis. I fortunately didn’t have the need to use St David’s Hospice’s services, but it puts it in to perspective that anything could happen to anyone at any time.

“I realise that we need the services of hospices more than ever and that’s why I value the opportunity to help.

“The concert itself will be a celebration of the Hospice’s 20 years in providing care in North Wales and I believe the crowds will be in the mood to celebrate, which makes me even more excited to perform in Llandudno in November. I think that a concert for a cause will always be special.”
