Welsh Singer Songwriter’s Debut In Hollywood
Anglesey based singer songwriter Meinir Gwilym is to headline the 2014 St

American Lorin Morgan-Richards is taking place at the Cinefamily Silent
Movie Theater in Hollywood, California on March 1 st 2014 Meinir Gwilym
is an acclaimed artist with awards including ‘Composer of the Year’ and
‘Best Female Artist’ (BBC Radio Cymru Rock and Pop Awards).
Additionally, Meinir has been sponsored by Yamaha and in 2005 had a one

Welsh Choir of Southern California and harpist Aedan MacDonnell.
Swansea based Jason Shepherd will be running a Welsh language workshop.
There will also be promotion of Welsh music, food and gifts as well as a
book release about Welsh Saints.
Organiser Lorin Morgan-Richards commented “I’m very excited to see the
reaction of attendees when Meinir Gwilym takes the stage. There is no
greater Welsh musician right now that has yet to perform in the states. The
Cinefamily Silent Movie Theater is a historic venue that has seen many
famous faces grace its stage, and being in Hollywood, we’ve also had
generous support from Welsh stars like Michael Sheen, Ioan Gruffudd,
Henry Thomas, and the families of Richard Burton and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Carmarthenshire based online Celtic network www.sanclertimes.ning.com is
also sponsoring the event. I am very grateful to the people of
Carmarthenshire and Wales in general for their support via the World Wide
Celtic Community network.”
