GOWER FESTIVAL July 1-12th 2014



Celebrating the birthdays of Dylan Thomas and Karl Jenkins.


As the new Artistic Director, I am thrilled to return to my Welsh roots and welcome you to the Gower Festival 2014. This festival promises to be full of exciting and varied concerts, with wonderful music, as well as new events such as pre concert talks, master classes and a jazz concert.

There is a great line up of international artists, starting with two outstanding Welsh talents, pianist Llyr Williams and Swansea born cellist, Thomas Carroll. Charismatic Latvian accordionist, Kesnija Sidorova makes her first Welsh appearance before dashing off to perform in Berlin the next day.

The grand finale weekend includes a welcome return by the brilliant orchestra of the Yehudi Menuhin School, with a special tribute to our former Artistic Director and composer, Gareth Walters.

We end the Festival by celebrating the 70th birthday of Karl Jenkins, as he conducts his own music with choir, orchestra and soloists in the beautiful setting of Tabernacle Chapel in Penclawdd, his birthplace.
Welcome home Karl!

Be on the look out for some surprise items.

I look forward to seeing you.

Gordon Back
We make a speciality of making people welcome.
