About Nath Trevett

Contemporary folk band
Mountain Ash
Guitarist; lutenist; arranger; songwriter; tutor

Nath is a guitarist and lutenist who arranges Welsh folk songs, religious songs and tunes in other languages sometimes instrumentally and sometimes including voice. He has recently been promoted as Course Tutor alongside Star Factor and in 2014 he won Best Musician Award at the National Eisteddfod. Nath was born in Bristol in 1986 and raised in Llantrisant from the age of 4. He began to learn the guitar when he was 7, and his interest in folk music started to grow when he was a teenager. Nath studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, where he also learned to play the lute alongside his principal study – the classical guitar. His biggest influences include artists like Mark Knopfler, Richard Thompson, Dick Gaughan, Martin Simpson, Davy Graham and Bert Jansch, and ever since before he finished college, Nath has been arranging folk music of different styles but focussed mostly on Welsh material (on top of Gaelic and German). He has performed at numerous venues ranging from open microphone nights, folk clubs and events, to charity concerts and Quaker gatherings. Also Nath has performed in Sweden many times, and in Pendle Hill, America, the Rochester Sweeps festival and at Leigh Folk Festival. He has also played with the band ‘Gwas y Neidr’ at the Acapela studio (where their CD “Ymlaen” was launched), the National Eisteddfod in the Cytun (where they played arrangements of hymns) and Maes G tents, and numerous Folk Festivals – the Fishguard Folk Festival, Folk on the Lawn in Chepstow, and Cwlwm Celtaidd in Porthcawl.

Frank H, 4 years ago

Guitar playing - dangerous, not to say 'terrifying! Wouldn't want to try it myself.

Idris J, 5 years ago

His talent as a guitarist is obvious.
