Catrin has been lucky enough to play music with some of the most The folk musicians in Wales over the past 15 years or so, many of which appear on her solo album Nain’s Kitchen.

Mae Catrin wedi bod yn ddigon ffodus i chwarae cerddoriaeth gyda rhai o’r cerddorion gwerin mwyaf talentog yng Nghymru dros y 15 mlynedd diwethaf, ac mae llawer ohonynt yn ymddangos ar ei halbwm unigol Cegin Nain.

They include; Gan gynnwys;
Mike Lease – fiddle/ ffidil + bouzouki (Yr Hwntws/ Hafren)
Chris Knowles – Celtic harp/ telyn Celtaidd, bouzouki + whistles/ chwibanau (Hafren/ Mooncoin)
Alan Cooper – fiddle/ ffidil (Whiskey river/ Allan yn y fan)
Nathan Lewis Williams – bouzouki + guitar (Dragonsfly)
Rob Venables – harmonica (Blues state UK)
Tim Orrell – whistles/ chwibanau, flute/ ffliwt, bodhran + vocals/ llais (Tornish)

During that time Catrin has also been a member of the ground breaking Welsh folk project 10 Mewn Bws. The aim of the project was to reinterpret and demystify traditional Welsh folk music by selecting ten musicians from different musical backgrounds to research their musical roots and to reinterpret Welsh traditional music in a ways relevant to them, and to modern audiences. The project was a great success, culminating with an album launch and tour of Wales.

Yn ystod y cyfnod hwnnw mae Catrin hefyd wedi bod yn aelod o’r prosiect gwerin Cymreig arloesol 10 Mewn Bws. Nod y prosiect oedd ail-ddehongli ac amlygu cerddoriaeth werin draddodiadol Gymreig drwy ddewis deg cerddor o wahanol gefndiroedd cerddorol i ymchwilio i’w gwreiddiau cerddorol ac ail-ddehongli cerddoriaeth draddodiadol Gymreig mewn ffordd sy’n berthnasol iddyn nhw, ac i gynulleidfaoedd modern.
Roedd y prosiect yn llwyddiant mawr, gan arwain at lansio albwm a thaith trwy Gymru.
