I heard The Gentle Good singing some lovely Welsh tunes on 6 music last week http://www.myspace.com/gentlegood. I image all you Cardiffians/people into music (and particularly those of you who are both – you know who you are!) have been aware of him for some time, but I haven’t, and I am also quite pleased with myself for expanding my own music listening repertoire (instead of relying on Simon to bring stuff home as is usually the case). He reminds me a bit of Eliott Smith but I hope he’s a happier soul than he. I love ‘Dawel Disgyn’…makes me nostalgic for the Welsh weather – can you believe I sometimes even miss the rain?. Its also got some of the same atmosphere to this brilliant CD we’ve got of Welsh lullabies called Suo Ganeoun- which has all sorts of well-known Welsh singers singing all sorts of well-known Welsh lullabies, in less well-known and interesting ways. mmmm lovely…think I might be getting into a bit of folk in me old age.
