Biography

Hen Ogledd take their name from the phrase for the Old North, the Celtic region comprising Southern Scotland and Northern England in early Middle Ages Britain. The band members - harpist Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell, Sally Pilkington, and Richard Dawson - all hail "from historically different tribal regions of the Old North". On Mogic the group defy the orthodoxy of exploring mystical customs with acoustic instruments; instead they celebrate the paradoxes and similarities of the ancient and modern through melody, technology and return-journey time travel.
