Angharad, Lowri, Nia and Daf are four siblings that make up the String Quartet, 4 Strings Attached. Born and raised in Swansea, the quartet have been playing together for over fifteen years and as 4 Strings Attached they combine their artistic talents with a passion for outreach, inspiring audiences and encouraging live music across the country. Run by Angharad and Nia (members of Live Music Now), their aim is to provide quality chamber music for events including weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, and work with organisations to bring music to individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to help break down boundaries of classical music. Angharad studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama winning both the McGrenery Chamber Award and Cardiff Violins Chamber Prize. Lowri also studied at the RWCMD and went on to study postgraduate at the Royal College of Music where she was winner of the RCM Viola Competition 2017. Nia graduated from the RWCMD in 2019 and was awarded the Florence Hilary Proctor Scholarship for outstanding musicianship, the Cardiff Violins Chamber Prize, the Albion Quartet Prize and the McGrenery Chamber Award. Daf is currently pursuing his musical studies with the hopes of a future career in the music industry. As individuals members of 4 Strings Attached have worked with orchestras such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Welsh National Opera. Available as Duos and Trios – known as String Sisters –Angharad, Nia and Lowri have also played with soloists such as Alfie Boe, Michael Ball, Robyn, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Paloma Faith, Marc Almond, Boy George and Robbie Williams and have performed in TV shows including X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
