Catherine Jones

Catherine Jones received a Pantyfedwen grant in 2016 to support her MA studies in Music at Bangor University, and she will graduate in the summer of 2018 with Distinction. Her research topic for the MA was Henry Brinley Richards (1817-1885), a composer and editor of the 'Songs of Wales'. Catherine has now progressed to study for a PhD, and is researching the music of the north Wales quarrying communities during the nineteenth and early twentieth century, in particular the communities associated with the Penrhyn and Dinorwig Quarries and some  of the smaller quarries in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
