Biography

Delyth Jenkins

Delyth Jenkins plays the Celtic harp and her repertoire includes her own arrangements of traditional music from Wales and the other Celtic nations, although it is perhaps her own compositions that have made the most lasting impression.

Delyth, who now lives near Swansea, was born in the border town of Oswestry. She taught herself to play the harp in her early twenties and has developed a style of playing that is very much her own.

As well as playing solo, she has also played in various groups including the highly acclaimed instrumental trio Aberjaber. She has toured extensively in Britain, Europe and America.

She also plays in the duo DnA with her daughter Angharad Jenkins on fiddle.

Delyth has recorded several albums. Her latest album LLAIS has received enthusiastic reviews:
“Her harp comes alive when her fingers touch it, and she weaves spine-shivering shades of light and dark. She is a truly magnificent musician and composer, too; half the CD is taken up with songs and tunes written by Delyth for a production of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood. Of all the countless Milk Wood productions, this easily has to be the best and the most moving.”
(Folkwales)

“Delyth Jenkins is one of Wales’s most accomplished and compelling Celtic harpists.”
(Taplas)
