Free folk gig at Gwdihw


Welsh singer Osian Rhys will be playing a free folk gig at Gwdihw on Wednesday 17th October from 8.30.

Osian grew up in North Wales and his acoustic set will feature enchanting folk songs in both English and Welsh.

‘A song is completely different depending on the language it is written or performed in. If an artist paints the same image in watercolour or thick oil paint, it produces different textures and movements.’

However, non-Welsh speakers shouldn’t be put off, as Osian’s haunting lyrics and soothing tone have been well received throughout the UK.

“All languages produce different sounds and so should be appreciated and enjoyed for their beauty. Welsh is certainly a language that flourishes in the form of verse, lyrics and poetry.”
