sian, west wales Folklore: The music of Wales (119* d) RE: Folklore: The music of Wales 28 Jul 10


That's odd, leeneia: Aidan Sheehan was just asking me a couple of days ago about Chwi Fechgyn as he's using it in some beginners classes over the next few months.

We're actually pretty well off with publications of dance tunes, and general instrumental tunes, these days. The folk orchestra, Y Glerorfa, has just published a small 'volume' - "Hobed" - of some of its repertoire (for harp, fiddle, flute), for example. I'm also looking forward to getting my hands on a new book next week, coincidentally titled Pwt ar y Bys, "60 Welsh folk songs for beginners: for fiddle, flute, whistle, pipes; with chords for guitar. Two CDs accompanying with each tune being played through twice (the first time, slowly)Price 10"

It's a pity the Welsh Traditional Music site has been inactive for so long. The guy who set it up had a very good heart.
