Wales, The Land of Song

Discover Shannon Mercer new release on Analekta: Wales, The Land of Song.
"To those who know me as a classical vocalist, this Welsh folksong album may seem odd. But this music, this Welsh culture and heritage IS the reason I became a singer. My direct connection to Wales is somewhat unusual. My fathers mother was left in a basket on the steps of an orphanage in June of 1913 in Gelligaer, Glamorgan, South Wales. My father immigrated to Montreal in 1967 along with my mother and my three eldest siblings. Later the family moved to Ottawa where two additional children were born--the youngest was me. My father always showed a passion and love for music. He discovered the Ottawa Welsh Society and began to sing with the Gwalia Singers. As a girl, I was able to carry on this inherited tradition when, at the age of 15, I travelled to Llangollen, Wales to sing in the prestigious Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. I returned to Canada as a proud ambassador, bringing home the winning silver cup!"
