Dick Gaughan - Live in Edinburgh (Scotland 1985) @VBR

By request

Recorded live in the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh during the 1984 Edinburgh International Festival.

In early January 1984, I was doing a gig in the Star Club in Glasgow. I got to the second verse of the second song and my voice went. It was 5 months before I could speak and 7 months before I could sing again. This concert was the first I had given and I was absolutely terrified. Edinburgh being my home town, the audience that night was largely friends who knew how I felt and when I walked out on the stage, the emotional support from them was like a large pair of arms giving me a huge hug; one of the most remarkable and wonderful moments of my life.
(Dick Gaughan).

Plethyn - Seidir Ddoe [1994 Wales] @320

Plethyn is a Welsh language folk music group that was at their zenith between 1978 and 1995. The members are Roy Griffiths, Linda Healy and John Gittings. Roy and Linda are brother and sister, with John Gittins born on a farm, near Meifod in Maldwyn.

Their style shows influence of the plygain singing of this area: simple, close harmony. They have popularised a number of folk songs very much and created new songs in a traditional style. The principal influence on the group was Elfed Lewys.

Plethyn is also the Welsh word for "braid" or "bond".
