Catrin Finch's 2015 album created in support of Water Aid by her husband's recording studio Acapela.
The world-renowned classical harpist from Ceredigion marks an exciting new phase in her remarkable musical career with this release - an album of her own compositions - which marks the first time Catrin's own compositions have appeared as a body of work on stage and on record, building on her hugely successful international classical performing career. It reveals a new side of an exceptional artist, driven to explore the possibilities of the harp and a lifetime of musical influences. As Catrin says, "All my musical life is here".
In addition to the harp, Catrin reveals her piano skills for the first time on this album, playing on several pieces. ‘Tides’ features a number of guest artists, including singer & duduk player Belinda Sykes on “Desert Shadow” & “Utopian Dreams”. Bogdan Vacarescu of the band Paprika plays solo violin on “Barometer Rising”, & the album also features strings, percussion, & the stirring sounds of Côr Caerdydd Choir.
