MUSIC STAR Jools Holland is set to perform at the Llangollen Eisteddfod.

The returning festival favourite and vice president of the Eisteddfod will entertain the Royal Pavilion audience with his legendary Rhythm and Blues Orchestra on Monday, July 1.

The week-long festival line-up features some of the world’s most internationally renowned musicians, including French-Mexican star tenor, Rolando Villazón, salsa, pop and flamenco outfit, Gipsy Kings, and award-winning Celtic music band, Jamie Smith’s MABON.

Interim music director of the festival, Edward-Rhys Harry, said: “It's been an exhilarating first few months in my role as music director at Llangollen Eisteddfod and a real joy to curate my very first concert series, which we feel reflects the musical excellence and diversity of this fantastic event.

“We are proud that this year’s festival line-up spans genres and generations, crossing the boundaries of age, culture and creed. There really is something for everyone and we’ll be adding even more early in the New Year, with the announcement of our Llanfest headliners for 2019.”
