Celyn grew up among Sussex hills and trees, and draws inspiration from nature, especially woodlands. Her father specialised in birdsong working within the National Sound Archive and encouraged her to play piano. In adulthood traveling in Peru and Bolivia she met people with very little who had so much heart. She found that learning and sharing songs in English and Spanish aided in bonding with an indigenous community in the rainforest as well as in schools and kindergartens.
Singing became a vital part of Celyn’s life, whether singing when collecting wood or water, digging the earth, planting, plastering cob walls or singing with others to mark phases in the sun, moon and earth cycles. Whilst living in a Pembrokeshire woodland without electricity or running water, she attended monthly Natural Voice Choir in a meadow. She loved the experience.
After her Singing Mamas Choir Leadership training in 2020, Celyn joined the Natural Voice Network. Celyn continues to develop her understanding of body, breath and voice. She is mentored by Thomas Schorr-kon and Chris North. She has lessons with singing teachers Su Hart and Anna Tabbush. Celyn initiated and led Natural Voice Lullaby Project (2021-present). She sings about and within nature inspired by her deep love of…. nature!
