I’m in the middle of recording album no.3 so I’m taking a back seat from gigging to allow time to finish the record. Nevertheless I do have some dates in the diary, so have a look and see if you’d like to add them to yours. Most are local to Cardiff as I’m not really looking to travel at the moment. I expect there’ll be more dates added from April onwards too.
9fed/9th - Clwb Rheilffordd, Bangor
14fed/14th - The Full Moon, Caerdydd/Cardiff
15fed/15th - St John’s Church, Canton, Cardiff/Caerdydd
15fed/15th - The Norwegian Church, Cardiff/Caerdydd - Charity Gig!
7fed/7th - Laugharne Weekend - Talacharn/Laugharne
24fed/24th - The Parrot - Caerfyrddin/Carmarthen
In other news I’ve spent the last two days at a remote cottage near Bala recording with Llion Robertson and my brother Alun. It was great to get away from the city and we’ve put a big dent in the album so I’m hoping it’ll be out in late spring/early summer.

I’ve been quite quiet about the dispute between a union of Welsh language musicians and the BBC, because quite frankly it’s a very complicated issue and I’ll probably get the facts wrong. I am one of the musicians that has signed up with Eos and suffice to say I am concerned that Eos and the BBC haven’t reached an agreement. I’m also frustrated by the bombardment of confusing and often misleading statistics from both sides. Finally, I hate the way that the situation has set musicians against each other and the BBC, and I hope that a resolution that is acceptable to everyone can be reached soon.
