Blanche Rowen (trac: Folk Development for Wales)


Blanche is Company Manager at trac, Wales’ Folk Development organisation. She’s a regular at EFEx, AFO, Folk Alliance International, building networks for Welsh music (especially traditional and acoustic) across the UK and beyond; this her first time at Focus Wales.
trac is the specialist organistation for traditional/folk music in Wales. We run the Ty Gwerin stage at the Eisteddfod, and we’re involved in art projects and collaborations, CPD training for professional musicians (especially music industry skills), and residential music courses for young people, like Gwerin Gwallgo for 12-18 year olds.
Our website has a Directory section of over 80 bands and performers plus resources and event listings, and trac’s remit includes dance, song and storytelling as well as instrumental music.
