You want to get hold of Taplas, published by Keith Hudson. I don't have his address handy, but you can get it from trac@trac-cymru.org Trac also produces a magazine, Ontrac, which you might want to sign up for.

Since Mick Tems was stricken, folkwales.org has suffered
for the SW borders try cresby.com
I link to some other sites that may help including folkwales.
If the Taplas info is not on folkwales write to Keith Hudson, as above
Funnily enough I got an e-mail from Newport FC to say they have returned to the Lyceum Tavern, check on my site within a day or 2 & I will have updated the entry. (Think Thursday.)
stop press - Sportsman Newtown has closed, try the Grapes.
What part of Wales by the way?

Does the English Folk Dance and Song Society still exist? They used to put out a yearly bulletin detailing weekly sing-arounds and other folk music gatherings for England, Scotland and Wales. Through that bulletin I found clubs in Rhyl and Bangor on the north coast (that was 19 years ago, however!!!). Good luck...and have fun!

Yes I believe that EFDSS still publishes its annual Folk Directory giving details of folk clubs, dance clubs, festivals, artistes and radio folk shows, etc.

But I haven't ordered one for a number of years now.

Yes, Taplas the Welsh Folk Magazine is your best bet.

What part of Wales are you interested in?

There does seem to be a growth in the number of folk clubs in recent years which must be a good sign.

E.F.D.S.S. is still very much in existence. Their address (permanently engraved on my brain cuz I used to work there) is:

Cecil Sharp House
2 Regent's Park Road
London NW1 7AY

Their website is www.efdss.org and they do still seem to publish the Folk Directory as well as "Root Source" which I confess I have never seen. (I edited the F.D. for two years, but it was eons ago so don't anyone ask me WHICH two years!)

Pardon my pedantry but isn't EFDSS English and isn't there a folk soc of Wales? Aberystwyth if I remember
Bonnie - Root source is a bit new to me but I intend to link to it from my site. If I get a link on Root Source. I think it is less boundary bound,
lets see what it Offa's..... I'll get my coat.....

True, it's a different country and all (as I was so pointedly told by a scotsman once re: the lion of the north), but the editors of EFDSS (I would hope) understand that music (and hopefully its proponents) knows no political boundaries. Besides, they're in the same neck of the woods. (Clearly this is an AMERICAN talking here, where close neighbors can be miles away.)

I've threaded elsewhere looking for folk clubs/pubs events Cardiff or Porthcawl, 4-7th April. If anyone can throw any further light it will be much appreciated.

Thanks

It's amazing that I find out on the Mudcat that my nearest folk night,the one at the Sportsman, has closed.

What is happening at the Grapes?

We had to stop our night at The Red Lion, but are planning to get something going in Llanfyllin, 12 miles away.

Cheers, Bron.

Can you explain to an American how to approach the double L's in Welsh?

Press the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth, behind the front teeth.

Try to say "sler" without moving your tongue away from the teeth.

It helps if your mouth isn't too dry, a few pints of beer would help enormously.

When you've mastered that, we'll move on to pronounciation of "Llanfyllin", and "Llansantffraid".

Cheers, Bron.

Welshpool Dragon but Thurs 14th datum, sporadic contact rees@melodeons.com for more info or trog along to the Bishops castle Folk w/e & ask him he is playing there on May 24th.
Sportsman the landlord is ill, Grapes is an open acoustic session, ask thelemonadelady@hotail.com about sessions in the area, 2nd Wed Buffalo Clun & last fri 6 Belss in BC are her babies & the Folk w/e.
er what do I get if I go all the way with LlanfairPG? apart from a wet & warm feeling all down my front?
surely there is only one L in Welsh!
Cardiff is dead, unless you count the Ruff ceilidhs and the Ruff dance club in Llandaff, & the BBC club which is off limits to non-media types. I am not sure about the Blues open stage in Penarth. Don't forget Pontyclun, Wed, the Windsor and a few other session type doos there. The have Chris Moreton soon.
Guest Ian if you are up in the North of wales there was a site run by a Huw but I lost the link and am not sure now but Llandudno has a few sessions and possibly still a club.

The trick of pronouncing 'Ll' that works for me is to sound the syllable 'Le' whilst expelling a breath at the same time ....

Let me know if it works for you to.

Similarly 'Dd' is pronounced as the English would utter 'The'.

Incidentally, there is also a single 'l' sound as in the placename 'Beddgelert' [literally Gelert's grave - he was the faithful hound that protected the Prince's sleeping son against a wolf attack, but was mistakenly killed because he and the baby were covered in the wolf's blood.]

Thread creep? What thread creep!

The charming story of Prince Llewellyn and Gelert was, of course, fabricated to attract the "saesneg" tourists to the town!!

Don't forget that "f" is pronounced "v", and "ff" is "f".

Cheers, Bron.

In reply to Skipper Jack and Bonnie the Folk Directory has been replaced by the on line Root Source. This does list clubs in Wales.

in response to Mr Red, Cardiff isn't as dead as he thinks it is, there is plenty available, just got to do a little scratching at the surface to find out about it all.

- there are at least two sessions that I know of at the mo... -------------------------------------------- One on a Thursday night, the other a alternative Monday night. But I can't remember the name of the pub on the Thursday. There is plenty of sessions and music in Cardiff - it's just that usually they are word of mouth, and sporadic or fairly quiet affairs.

I organise a monthly session in Newport on the first friday of the month - and there are a fair few sessions in the area too.

So, there is music there if you search enough... tut tut,such a big sweeping statement.

If I can get my memory back I will post the place names of the sessions. Plus there is usually alot of music to be found at the Norwegian Church and the St. Donats arts centre. Try Taplas, that's the best contact to get you started around the Cardiff area.

BBC Club not really an event really - more of a sporadic thing, and is accessable to others. (well I have got in - so must let anyone in... tee hee)

Blackwood miners institute hosts lots of music events, and even does a guitar workshop on a regular basis. Plus there's the Beaufort theatre in the Valleys that has some pretty good gigs too.

THere's a folk club in Monmouth (cant remember the day - possibly Mondays???) and various sporadic sessions all over Monmouthshire (just ask at the venues and clubs, people will generally be willing to let you know of some further happenings.

Ahhh could go on and on... but I think that's enough for now.

Regards

Ella
