since they formed in 1996, fernhill have become important cultural ambassadors for wales and its music, having toured in over 20 countries and three continents. the musical traditions that inform the individual players are many and diverse but the common urge is to challenge, enchant and to reach into the core of a shared inheritance and memory and to make that available to anybody who wants a piece. three musicians in the past who have helped shape the music are jonathan shorland, andy cutting and cass meurig. musicians who have guested live and on recordings are danny kilbride, karen tweed, gerard kilbride, paula gardiner, andy coughlan, dylan fowler, jean-luc tomas, richard llewellyn and desi wilkinson.
