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 :frowning: 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/


Oh wow!

Thanks for this I’ll have a look at it and keep an eye out
