Hollo

Myself and my other half are going on holiday to Aberdaron on the Llyn Peninsula in Wales in April. Are there any sessions or likewise folky activity going around there that anyone knows of?

Cheers

Chris

There's Conway Folk Club
You may get more from Google if you correct the spelling to Lleyn Peninsula. Yours appears to relate to an Island(Llyn) peninsula, surely a contradiction in terms.

Cheers
Nigel

The closest ones I know of are in Caernarfon, Bangor, Nant Peris and Dolgellau. They're in the listings here.

Oops, Nige. "Llyn" is actually 'lake'.

We had our own session at the Coach Inn in Clynnog Fawr (Klingon Four to those who can only speak English and Klingon...) The landlord at the time was a Scouser and was quite happy to let us play as long as we were drinking. Good pint of Pedigree with added Vitamin Headache, so on the second night opted for the absolutely wonderful Mitchells Mild.

Visit the Iron Age barrow if you get there - Eerie place.

Cheers

Dave

Was there a few years back, in Morfa Nefyn.

Didn't find any singing pubs in the area, best put out an APB to folkies in those parts for a gettogether somewhere

BTW - If anyone ever wondered why there was a massive church (St Buenos) and a huge coaching house in Klingon Four it is because it is a stopping place for pilgrims bound for Bardley Island (I think!)

Don't know about sessions I'm afraid, but can someone tell me how to pronounce it? Whenever I hear the said peninsula mentioned on the radio or TV it's pronounced "llyn". Is that right?

It's pronounced more like Hclane, I think. One of the funniest things I heard was in the the Coach. Two blokes speaking in Welsh One said Hclllwww wwwcckkk trwcluwwee - usual stuff - and the other one replied "F***ing Black and Decker!"
