From The Magical Welsh Valleys...
“A superb mixture of the traditional and contemporary, her harp-playing perfectly matching a gorgeous voice.”
Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales
Bethan Nia is bringing her own Welsh twist to the world of Celtic Music. Hailing from Pontypridd, Bethan makes music that feels eclectic, yet direct and personal - echoing the seminal works of artists Loreena McKennitt, Moya Brennan, Enya and Kate Bush.
She is a winner of the coveted Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections.
With her harp and ethereal vocals, Bethan creates lush, dynamic melodies with crisp production aesthetics. Combining earthy Welsh folk songs with ornate pop arrangements, she creates a particularly unique sound. She is about to release her debut bilingual album Ffiniau (Borders).
"An astral flight on a musical breeze to far off places and times.
It relaxes me to the point of being at one with our
beautiful earth, past and present."

Listening to her brings a peaceful
feeling over me during this time."

has apprehended my heart and soul. She sweeps

helped me feel better about my difficult health challenges."
"Her music will carry you away yet hold you at bay,
while the vocals come in with a unique sound
of spiralling emotions, beauty and pure love…
a special magical dream."
"She takes us back to the spirit of a world we long to remember…
music that reminds us that there is a permanence to our spirit."
