Richard Lloyd Owen, a Real Welsh Tenor!
Richard is originally from Denbigh in Wales, and is proud of his heritage. He is delighted to sing popular Welsh songs in Welsh, or to sing a soloist for Welsh choirs and choral societies.
"Richard Lloyd Owen has a strong resonant tenor voice with a long legato line
and ringing top notes which he used to portray the Duke as a man of action."
