“If Welsh music is perennially considered the poor relation in the Celtic tradition, Allan Yn Y Fan are moving mountains to change all that.”

“...So look out Scotland and Ireland, a new Celtic Tiger is prowling...”

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.

You got everyone up, dancing, smiling, laughing – it was fantastic!”

Anyone reading this with the view to booking live Celtic music for your wedding or any event – DO IT!!!”

All the effort we went to get a decent Indian meal, lots of free booze, a home-made wedding cake… and all that people can talk about is the band!!! Seriously though, you really made the evening great fun. It was over far too quick.”
