The famous Tavarn Ty Elise in Plouye, Brittany, has been destroyed by an accidental fire, Ouest France reports. Byn Walters, the Ty Elise landlord, was born in Merthyr and emigrated to Brittany, where he presided over traditional sessions where many famous Breton musicians (including Alan Stivell, guitarist Soig Siberil, Erik Marchand, bombarde and hautbois player Ioan Le Bihan and piper Padrig Molard) would relax with a glass of Coreff real ale, brewed in the Breton town of Morlaix. Byn promoted the links with Wales and Brittany, and among the Welsh musicians who drank there were Meic Stevens, Calennig and Plethyn. Irish players included Davy Spillane, Paddy Keenan and Liam Wheldon. Ty Elise was noted and loved throughout the entire Breton nation and Wales, Ireland and the whole of the celtic nations.

Latest news: Byn Walters says that Ty Elise CAN rebuild, but he is going to need help. August is the estimated date of completion.

I count Byn Walters as a friend. The same goes with the Breton musicians and Welsh, Irish and Cornish ones as well.

From one fire survivor to another; I am so sorry to hear of this loss. My the rebuilding lead to music renewed tenfold.
