We are pleased to announce the release of ‘A New Look at Welsh Folk Song’ by Daniel Huws, former Keeper of Manuscripts at the National Library of Wales. It is a translation of 'Pwy fydd yma 'mhen can mlynedd?'
Daniel Huws gives an overview of work done in this field, especially that of the late Meredydd Evans, in the first Meredydd Evans Memorial Lecture, specially commissioned by Bethan Miles for the Friends of Plas Hendre. He emphasises transience in his discussion of the evidence regarding the tradition, both the tunes and the words, and raises questions and offers new ideas about many aspects of this intriguing subject.
For the non-specialist reader a glossary of Welsh terms is provided and guidance given to websites where the materials referred to can be consulted and heard.
42 page staple bound booklet.
