Gwilym Bowen Rhys, voice & guitar
'One of these islands' best, in any language' - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
'A musician who is fast becoming a national treasure' – Tudur Huws Jones, The Welshman
A compelling and charismatic stage performer, Gwilym Bowen Rhys is established as a leading ambassador for Welsh language song. In 2019 he was nominated for the Folk Singer of the Year Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and won Best Solo Artist Award at the Welsh Folk Awards. He has represented Wales in performances at the British Embassy in Paris, the National Eisteddfod, and with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
Hailing from the village of Bethel at the foot of Snowdon in North West Wales, Gwilym has been singing in his native language since childhood. His first album O Groth y Dæaar was released in 2016 and was shortlisted for Best Album of the Year at the National Eisteddfod. His fourth and latest album, Detholiad o Hen Baledi II, released in March 2022, is a treasury of old Welsh ballads described by From The Margins as 'probably the most complete, bewitching folk album you will hear all year'.
