See http://caneuongwerin.co.uk/a.html

This is a excellent reworking of the old Caneuon Gwerin web site - it seems to have a number of songs added - including some of the more modern Welsh folk songs. I hope Welsh folk singers will send in songs to add.
Some English translations would help too.
I've been singing some of these songs at Chicago song circles - not always with the supportive reaction that one would like to expect from the open-minded folk community - "Wales??" they say.......
Are there song circles in Wales that sing these or other folk songs?

Can't really answer that as the only sessions of Welsh music I ever played in were instrumental - used to be a good one in Bangor that unforutnately I only made once.

The site I'd be inclined to ask your question at is http://www.welshtraditionalmusic.com/. I believe it is quite new but I think it looks promising in the area of Welsh traditional music.

ererzer?

Re: the site, yes - a good collection of songs, many still in the 'active' repetoire. That is - sung in different situations: sometimes choirs, or soloists in concerts, or community singing. I suppose there are a few "sing-arounds" but I don't know of many who do Welsh language songs. It's not a concept that's caught on here. As jon said, there are a lot more instrumental sessions doing tunes, and one of the ones in Bangor does include songs. I know one guys who sings there and he would sing some of those on this site.

"Ydych chi'n hoffi coleg hyd yn hyn" (N not M) would be, "Do you like college so far".
