4BR has been informed that the musical partnership between Seindorf Arian Crwbin and Professional Conductor Craig Roberts has drawn to a close.

During his two year tenure the band claimed the National Eisteddfod of Wales Second Section title in 2017 as well as become runner-up in the Welsh League Championship series in both 2017 and 2018 thanks to their consistent prize winning performances.

Progress

Speaking to 4BR, Craig said: "I'm delighted in the progress that has been seen in both individual players and the band as a whole at Crwbin over the past two years.

I firmly hope that progress will continue under new direction and thank each of the players for all their hard work and success during my time with them."

Thanks

In response, Crwbin President Julian Jones added: "On behalf of everyone at Crwbin I would like to thank Craig for the energy, commitment and direction from which the band has benefited greatly, and extend every good wish for the future".

An announcement regarding the future musical direction of the band will be made in due course.
