New Video Release

The second track on the CD release is “Gorthrwm y Gweithiwr” – a song of mid-19th Century industrial Wales in which the iron masters of Beaufort, Ebbw Vale are warned of dire consequences should they continue their oppressive ways. Working with talented film maker Antonia Salter the band recently filmed in Blaenau Gwent locations most pertinent to the song. One of the two Round Towers built in Nantyglo by Ironmaster Crawshay Bailey as protection against his workers, whilst the Sirhowy Iron Works (contemporary to the Beaufort Iron Works) provided an apt 19th Century industrial backdrop.
