Brenig (Daniel Laws and Mandy Martin) are an acoustic folk duo based in Aberystwyth, who travel all over Wales and in England performing a show called "Songs From The Heart Of Wales"... original folk and contemporary songs composed by Daniel.
Daniel was brought up on a farm in mid Wales and draws on his own personal experiences and observations to compose songs that tell stories of welsh folklore, traditions, history and the countryside. Some funny, some sad and some just beautiful.
Brenig have headlined and supported some of the country's leading folk artists since they formed and have a gained a great reputation for their live performances.
Named after the Welsh word for element, Elfen is the seamless blending of three great musicians.
Elfen began in 2011 when Stacey Blythe and Helina Rees decided to begin working together to create a personal and joyous expression of Welsh Folk. Two years later the band found the fundament they were looking for in Jordan Price Williams and his double bass.
After playing at Lorient Interceltique Festival in 2013 Elfen have appeared at venues across Wales, including St David's Hall Welsh Folk Proms, Wales Millenium Centre and other arts centres.
Elfen create a distinctive and soulful soundtrack for a new folk music in Wales. With the ancient songs and tunes of the Cymry at their heart, Elfen are re-imagining the traditional.
