DAFYDD IWAN is the newest and most original discovery in Welsh folk singing. This is his first record. Son of a well-known minister of Llanuwchllyn in the mountains of Meirionnydd, now an architecture student in Cardiff, he has created a tremendous following, largely as star of the TWW daily programme Y Dydd. Perhaps the first modern Welsh language singer to become a teenage idol, he is also a poet, writer and cartoonist; and like Bob Dylan and Donovan, whom he greatly admires, he writes his own lyrics and music.
Dafydd Iwan sings of love — and he sings of Wales. This record shows why he embodies the spirit of a new generation, dedicated to fight for the language and the land we love, for a free Wales.
EDWARD MORRIS JONES, another young patriot-singer who is popular on radio and television, is also from Llanuwchllyn. Son of a farmer, intends to teach in Glamorgan. On this record he plays a 12-string guitar, and joins in the vocal of Wyt ti'n Cofio?
