From the moment Rhys Crimmin starts playing audiences are drawn to the warm sound he creates. As he sits amongst an array of instruments you will feel the rhythmic pulse of the kick drum, the haunting drone of the didgeridoo or bluesy cross Celtic sounds of the harmonica, his guitar work playing underneath while his raw, powerful and emotive vocals soar above.
