Australian trio Germein to support Sir Tom Jones at Eisteddfod


            * Australian trio Germein will support Sir Tom Jones on July 2.

Australian sibling trio Germein will support Welsh icon and music legend Sir Tom Jones when he headlines the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod this summer. 

Sir Tom will present the opening show of the Core Eisteddfod Week on Tuesday July 2 and it is announced today he will be joined on the night by Germein.


Indie-pop trio Germein, made up of sisters Georgia (guitar and lead vocals), Ella (bass) and Clara (drums) hail from South Australia. 


Germein began turning heads following the release of debut album Because You Breathe in 2013 and have been described as nothing short of mesmerising.

Taking the lead from strong female artists like HAIM and CHVRCHES, they are inspired by the vocal harmonies of iconic bands such as Queen and Fleetwood Mac.


With an impressive list of accolades under their belt, including opening for pop icons Little Mix, Ronan Keating, Phil Collins, Jess Glynne, and multiple times for Tom Jones, the trio promises a treat for Llangollen audiences.

Tom Jones has established himself as one of the most accomplished musicians of all time. 

Born in the mining town of Pontypridd, South Wales in 1940, he signed with Decca Records in the 1960s kickstarting a successful career with chart-topping hits such as It's Not Unusual, What's New Pussycat?, Delilah and Green, Green Grass of Home. 

His passion for diverse musical genres has led him to collaborate with legendary artists such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Dolly Parton and Ed Sheeran. 

His career has been filled with numerous honours and accolades, including a deeply cherished knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in 2006, multiple BRIT Awards, a Silver Clef Award, the prestigious Music Industry Trusts Award, and a Hitmaker Award from the US Songwriters Hall of Fame. 

The headlining show will form part of the core week of the 2024 Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod which will also see concerts with Welsh icon Katherine Jenkins and international best-selling artist Gregory Porter. 

Along with the core week of the festival running from July 2 - 7, this year sees a series of concerts taking place as part of a new partnership between Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod and Live Nation promoters Cuffe and Taylor. 

Tom Jones, Katherine Jenkins and Gregory Porter join global rock stars Simple Minds, British pop giants Madness, indie heroes Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers and Suede, BRIT award-winning artist Paloma Faith, chart-topper Jess Glynne, disco legends Nile Rodgers & CHIC and global rock star Bryan Adams among the artists to headline dates either side of the iconic peace festival in 2024. 

Artistic Director of the Llangollen Eisteddfod Dave Danford said: “Tom Jones has been the talk of the town ever since we announced our 2024 line-up, and the opening night of our Core Eisteddfod Week will now be even bigger, with Germein warming up the stage for him. Their catchy brand of indie pop will be just the ticket to build the excitement on Tuesday 2 July.”
