Chris in Portland Welsh language folk music (87* d) RE: Welsh language folk music 09 Oct 07

Thanks for the comments - my grandparents came from Dollgellau - great-grandpa ran a pub across from where Ty Siamas is now. To take advantage of the music and location, we plan to use Dolgellau as a base and spend at least 5 days there and then go further north for as long as our shrinking dollars can last. The event listings for this October are really great - even old friends John Prine and Buddy Mondlock from Chicago!!
But it is hard to tell which towns listed are in the north. Any suggestions for a town along the north coast with a folk music scene that we could use as a second base? Lots of great places to stay for the scenery, but would also like to find a music tie-in.
Sian, I'll keep a look-out for your event and hope we can make that too.
Diolch eto, Chris
ps I'm doing Pererin Wyf at the Welsh church here on Sunday, and also that and other Welsh songs for a Welsh Society Xmas program. We're also working on Ar Gyfer Heddiw'r Bore for our Lessons and Carols service. So no skimping on yr heniaith yn Portland!
