Dafydd Jones with James Garnon, Samling Artist Programme

‘It really was an incredible week of learning and music making in such a friendly environment. I feel that I’ve come away with a great tool kit to tackle new repertoire which I will cherish and apply for years to come. I’m so proud to have been able to watch my colleagues thrive and develop through the week as we learnt from each other in a supportive manner. I’m most thankful to the Samling team for this opportunity and to the leaders who made the week so inspirational.’
