THE CALON LÂN FESTIVAL 2020
A celebration of Daniel James
2020 marks 100 years since the passing of Daniel James who is laid to rest at the Calon Lân Centre, Mynyddbach Chapel in Swansea. As part of the festival, a special Summer Concert was scheduled to take place at the Calon Lân Centre on the 15th of May, featuring Dunvant Male Choir and more. Sadly this has since been postponed, however, as we near the end of lockdown in Wales, we are working towards a new date to celebrate Daniel James.
The Calon Lân project has been set up to maintain and encourage an understanding of our local heritage. The main aim of the organisation is to give communities a sense of belonging and identity using the history of the local area and the story of Calon Lân to bring people together. Mynyddbach Chapel is the home and burial place of the Welsh Bard Gwyrosydd who wrote amongst other things the words to the famous Welsh Hymn Calon Lân
