Thanks anyway Siaron, I appreciate its not always easy to give much notice. Unfortunately for me, I live outside of Wales so without notice I usually can’t attend but regardless it’s really nice of you to post these gigs.
I’m also intrigued, what sort of music did your band play?
In case this helps anyone else, I keep track of a lot of gigs using a site called ents24.com
You can use it to follow bands and venues which is really handy. Unfortunately for smaller acts and venues, including Welsh language acts its a bit hit and miss.
What about venues that frequently put these sorts of things on, and annual festivals? Can anyone recommend these sorts of things?
I was in Estella, Bob Delyn a’r Ebillion, and also did short stints in Anweledig and Twmffat.
There’s the Eisteddfod of course, both the Maes B and Maes gigs plus the ones organised by Cymdeithas Yr Iaith. Some of the bigger ones are Sesiwn Fawr in Dolgellau and Tafwyl in Cardiff, and I think there are still festivals in Caerphilly and Camarthen, but quite a few towns have their own smaller festivals.
Centres like Tŷ Tawe in Swansea, Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff and Saith Seren in Wrexham have regular gigs, and I think there are still gigs held in Pontrhydfendigaid. (I’m trying to remember the main/regular places we performed, because lots of gigs were smaller scale festivals or pub gigs all across Wales - and it was quite a while ago now!)
Edit - I’ve just had a quick look, and it’s worth keeping an eye on the Y Selar website for news of upcoming gigs and releases - https://selar.cymru/
Thanks for this I’ll have a look at it and keep an eye out
