Aled and Eleri Edwards

Aled and Eleri Edwards live on the family farm in Carmarthenshire, in the picturesque Tywi Valley, although Eleri is originally from the Conwy Valley in North Wales.

They are accomplished soloists, and the highlight of both their singing careers was winning the coveted Blue Riband – The David Ellis Memorial Prize. Aled having won at the 1997 National Eisteddfod at Bala and Eleri in 2013 in Denbigh, they are the only married couple to have achieved this prestigious double.

They are in great demand for oratorios and concerts where their repertoire of both solos and duets are varied in style and appealing to all listeners. They span most musical eras and many genres, from classical to contemporary.

Both Eleri and Aled have travelled extensively as guest soloists all over the world, particularly in Europe and North America. Eleri was invited to Melbourne in 2014 as guest soloist at the St David’s Day celebrations organised by the Melbourne Welsh Church.

Having shared the concert platform with Victoria Welsh Choir in Aberaeron, during their 2016 tour of the UK, both are delighted to return to Australia, and renew old friendships at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
