We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to Dafydd Huw as one of our Festival tutors.
As a young harpist, Dafydd attended several of the early harp courses of Telynau Bangor and became Elinor Bennett’s student whilst completing his BMus degree at Bangor University.
Dafydd later studied with Osian Ellis, as Post-graduate student at the Royal Academy of Music, and at the Centre for Orchestral Studies, London, and later worked for the Salvi Harp Company.
Dafydd returned to Wales in 1985, and ever since has made an invaluable and important contribution to the growth of interest in the harp. He has worked as teacher and official harpist in most of the National Music Festivals and Eisteddfodau for the last 40 years.
Dafydd Huw has taught hundreds – if not thousands – of children and adults. He continues to work as harp tutor in schools in his home area of Conwy, and broadcasts regularly on radio and television.
