Sian’s songs are inspired by her walks both in the country and in the city. They are celebrations of her deep connection with the world under her feet.
This type of creativity can be described as ‘psychogeographic‘. It expresses a feeling for place combined with the stories that these places have to tell.
The Green Man has been a part of Sian’s life forever and stems from her rural upbringing in Wales. The songs themselves however, were evoked by walking in the woods at Mount Edgcumbe park in Cornwall .
The London Songs spring from a continuing love for the city which has been with her since she first became acquainted with the rhymes and rhythms of London when she arrived on The Old Kent Road at the age of eighteen.
She is still ‘the girl with a fiddle and contrary ways’.
