Eve Goodman is a singer-songwriter from North Wales, who writes and performs in English and Welsh. Her music is rooted in her sense of place. Carried by a clear voice, Eve weaves in the natural world and the beauty surrounding her. Her lyrics reveal a deep connection to what it is to be human in these troubled, inspiring times. From swimming in lakes and finding her voice, to letting her tears be washed by the ocean, her latest EP Wave Upon Wave is an elemental collection of songs about water. Bound by themes of collective human experiences, each song explores our relationship to the wildness and the truth within us. From intimate house gigs and folk festivals, to the international stages at The Dubai World Expo of 2022, Eve’s captivating stage presence is a gift she carries with her wherever she goes.
For Dathliad Cymru-Affrica, a special collaboration has been commissioned between N’famady Kouyaté (Artistic Director of The Successors of the Mandingue) and Eve Goodman to bring the folk traditions of West Africa and Wales together in a single piece, celebrating the ancient cultural traditions and languages of their countries of origin. N’famady and Eve first met when they both represented Wales at Celtic Connections in 2022 and we are excited to hear the work they have been creating.
