The Year of Wales at Lorient / An Oriant
This is the largest Celtic Festival in Europe. Catrin Finch is a phenomenal musician who is doing more than anyone else so far to put the harp on the musical map. Her first major international prize came in 1999 when she won the Lily Laskine International Harp Competition in France – one of the premier harp competitions in the world. Catrin is the former Royal Harpist to the H.R.H. the Prince of Wales. She had the honour of reviving this ancient tradition last held in 1873 and held the appointment from 2000-2004. She has performed extensively throughout the U.S.A., the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
