Pencerdd the specialist music shop based in Penarth South Wales
It is Pencerdd’s 10th anniversary this year and they have just started to stock a range of high quality Freshman and Faith guitars. These award winning guitars are designed in the UK and less widely available than other brands, and you have a shop right on your doorstep supplying them.
It’s no wonder these guitars are widely desired by many when the likes of Matt Cardle, The Kooks, Roy Haper and Sandi Thom swear by them.
Husband and wife team Adrian and Jo Lewis, opened their music store in late 2002 when they were the only independent harp retailer in the UK. Since then two other harp stores have opened in the Cardiff area but that hasn’t stopped them from following their passion for music.
At the end of this month Pencerdd will receive the first of a new model of harp, which is being made especially for them in the Far East, and should be much more affordable than other models. So get down to the store for your chance to be one of the first to experience the full flavour of such an exclusive and sensational instrument.
Adrian has been playing guitar semi professionally for over 40 years and ran Penarth Folk/Blues club for over 8 years. Visiting “roots” musicians are never disappointed when the pair go all out and put on their extraordinary concerts from time to time.
Adrian and Jo’s expertise in guitars and harps mean there is no better place to buy, whatever your musical tastes may be. They are proud of the variety of stock they offer, with guitars from £50 – £2000 and harps from £700 – £17000. But it doesn’t stop there. They also supply a range of folk instruments from bouzoukis, autoharps, accordions, mandolins and banjos, with a wider range of sheet music than any other music store in the area.
Their passion for music clearly runs in the family, with their daughter Mali a harpist and pianist who graduated with 1st Class Honours from the Royal College of Music in London. She currently teaches private students in Penarth and plays bass, keyboard and guitar in a pop/rock band Race Horses. The band has just signed a recording contract and released their first single last week.
So drop in to Pencerdd and delve into their vast range of unique instruments to experience some of the rare delights the music world has to offer.
