Iolo Whelan - Rock Star (13 September 2011)

mabon Iolo Whelan is appearing with Mabon at St David's Hall at 8pm on Tuesday, 13 September.  Click on the read more link below for further details.

Dear villagers,

Anyone who's seen and enjoyed the band Mabon in the past (or anyone who would like to see me perform in a more formal setting than the Roundhouse!), may be interested to know that I will be playing with my band Jamie Smith's MABON at St David's Hall next week.

For those of you not already familiar with this award-winning band, it plays a heady brew of original, mostly instrumental, Interceltic music, and has a national and international reputation for delivering excellent live performances.

The concert, at 8pm on Tuesday, 13 September is part of the renowned 'Roots Unearthed' series on Level 3, which brings folk and roots acts from around the world to Cardiff.

We'd love to see the place packed with friendly faces for this rare local appearance, and especially at this lovely, intimate venue - and I'd be ever so pleased to see some St Hilary villagers in the audience, so please do come!

Tickets are £12 in advance from the Box Office (029 20 878 444) or on-line at or £13 on the door.

There's a load of information, music, photos and live videos of the band on-line too at if you'd like a browse.

See you there! 

iolo.  :-)

Jamie Smith's MABON yn Neuadd Dewi Sant.

Annwyl Bentrefwyr,

Bydd gan unrhywun sydd wedi gweld a mwynhau'r band Mabon (ac unrhywun hoffai fy ngweld i'n chwarae mewn cyswllt mwy ffurfiol na'r Ty Crwn!), ddiddordeb i glywed y byddai'n chwarae gyda Jamie Smith's MABON yn Neuadd Dewi Sant wythnos nesa.

Os nad ydych chi'n gyfarwydd a gwaith y band cyffrous yma, mae'n chwarae cerddoriaeth Rhyng-geltaidd, wreiddiol, offerynol rhan fwya: edrychwch ar y wefan am fiwsig, gwybodaeth, lluniau a fideos o'r grwp.

Mae'r gyngerdd, ar nos Fawrth 13/9 am 8yh, yn rhan o'r gyfres adnabyddus 'Roots Unearthed' ar Lefel 3, sy'n dod a grwpiau gwerin a 'roots' o dros y byd i Gaerdydd.

Fe ddwlen ni weld y lle dan ei sang am y gyngerdd leol brin yma, ac fe faswn i'n bersonol wrth fy modd i weld rhai o bentrefwyr St Hilary yno.

Mae tocynnau yn £12 ymlaen llaw o'r Swyddfa (029 20 878 444) neu ar-lein ar, neu £13 ar y drws. 

Wela'i chi yno gobeithio!
