Teulu have had a very busy 12 months with lots of gigs spread across Powys, Gwynedd, and Shropshire. We also spent time in the studio and now have a CD “Cwynion ac Ysbrydion” (Whines and Spirits) which has been selling well. You can hear a sample of some of the tracks by going to the music page.
We had a couple of lovely gigs recently. Firstly at Just 3 Drops in Llanfair Caereinion, as part of Gŵyl Gwion Bach on 27th January. Thanks to Ruth at Just 3 Drops for hosting us, and also to Bryn and Rhian Davies for organising a superb event and asking us to play. It was good to see Dylan Penri again at the gig. Dylan did all the recording work for us on our CD.
Last night, 24th February, we finally got to play at St Illog, in Hirnant. We were first approached to play there more than a year ago so it was good to be able to perform there to a very appreciative audience. Thank you to Nicola Bradley for organising the evening and for asking us to play, and also to the folk who did all the cooking and fed us with some wonderful food.
Teulu have a number of events coming up during the year and as we get confirmation of times and dates we'll put the details here.
A long overdue update!
After some very stressful times involving a certain courier company, and some superb customer service and attention to detail by the CD duplicating company, Promodiscs we have our CDs. They were in our hands in July and have been selling steadily since then. We have had a number of gigs since then and as can be seen from the list below we have more to come.
A pretty hectic day is lined up for 7th October, when we will be playing at the The Blackberry Fair in Whitchurch, Shropshire during the morning and then, after a dash across to Bala, Gwynedd, a performance at Gwerin Gorwelion Food and Folk festival in the evening.
