♥ English Book of the Month: May 2019 In the summer of 2012 Delyth Jenkins walked the 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. She carried a small harp with her, giving a series of impromptu path-side concerts. Structured around the 17 days of the walk, this book is an account of her adventures and the people she met and played for along the way.

Author Biography: Delyth Jenkins was born in Oswestry. She moved south to study English and French at University College, Swansea and has lived in the city ever since. It was here, when she was in her early twenties, that she started learning Welsh and the harp. Being self-taught, she has developed a style of playing that is very much her own. Over the years she has tried her hand at a variety of jobs, including teaching, apple picking, book selling and library work, but it is the music that has been the constant thread through her life. She started her career with the Swansea-based folk band Cromlech, and then went on to form the pioneering instrumental trio Aberjaber. She has made many albums both as a member of groups and as a soloist, and she has toured extensively in Britain, Europe and America. She has also worked as an actor, composer and musician for various theatre companies, and has collaborated with poets and storytellers. But it is perhaps her collaboration with her daughter Angharad Jenkins that gives Delyth the most pleasure. Delyth & Angharad released their second album Llinyn Arian in 2018.
