Barddair an Cheoil is a group of poets and musicians dedicated to collaborating, writing and performing in their native languages – Irish and Welsh. All are from western Wales and the West of Ireland and all live close to the sea. They have chosen as their themes the ocean and estuaries, the changes brought about there by climate change, and the creatures threatened by these changes. This broadcast, going out on World Curlew Day – 21st April – is a celebration of the bird and the wild places it loves, and also a wake-up call that in both Wales and Ireland it’s coming perilously close to extinction.
