Thread Name: Welsh bands and festivals
Subject: RE: Welsh bands and festivals
We're planning a trip for next year to Wales and especially my ancestral home, Dolgellau. To be able to stay longer, we probably need to go off-season, and, besides visiting the new Ty Siamas, would like to include a folk fest in our time there.
What would be the best Spring or Fall fest for hearing Welsh spoken and sung? Since we're traveling from the US, we would also need a fest that had reasonable accomodations near-by.
Any suggestions? Something informal, so that I might borrow or rent a guitar and play some of the Welsh songs I've learned in jams?
Thanks for your help, very timely thread, Chris in Portland OR

ps going to see Les Barker in a house concert this weekend - found that yesterday on another thread!
