The Band:

John Tose


John is well known on the Welsh traditional music scene as a maker of Welsh bagpipes and pibgyrn. He began piping with Ceri Rhys Matthews' Pibau Pencader, and went on to play with Ceri in the Welsh pipes and drum band Pibe Bach, including forays abroad with the British Council to Libya, Oman, and Jerusalem and the West Bank. He was also involved in organising the acclaimed Gwyl Bibau Pencader bagpipe festival.

Later, he played with Pibau Preseli who performed a mixture of Welsh and continental music, along with Peni Ediker, Stef Balesi and Jez King. In 2007 he made his debut solo album `Cerrig Dymuniad' with Stef and Jez as guest musicians.

Danny also plays the Welsh bagpipe - the pibau cyrn. The instrument she plays with Estron, she made herself in her father's workshop in the Preseli hills in North Pembrokeshire.

As well as piping with Estron she can often be found playing for Heb Enw Morris - the local Border Morris team - as can her sister, Micky.

Jess Ward


Jess says - " I come from Pembrokeshire in West Wales where I have been lucky to live all my life in a land of crashing waves, rugged cliffs, mirrored pools, twisting oaks, windswept thorn and peeping primrose. After many years performing and creating with my guitar I have now found my dream instrument in the Celtic lever harp. I play a Telor model, made at Telynau Teifi, The Harp Centre of Wales in Llandysul."

Her solo album "The Mermaids Lament" is available from:










Holly Robinson


Holly is a well known figure in Pembrokeshire folk circles both as regular performer at various folk sessions, and also as a member of the folk group `Quarto'.
