From Punk to Folk-Rock over 40 years
This year the band from Caernarfon, 'Y Cyffro', celebrates 40 years by releasing the album 'Yn y Gorllewin' (In the West). It's an opportunity to ask Derek Hughes (rhythm guitar) and Dave Roberts (lead guitar) about the group's interesting history.
Shortly after establishing in 1978 the band had the opportunity to have a gig at the National Eisteddfod, which was held in Cardiff that year. "We were supporting the 'Trwynau Coch' at the Arms Park Club" says Derek, "and that started a close relationship where we often supported them, in places like Corwen and at Talybont in Caernarfon, of course" .
