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

Today we are throwing back to the time we spent with Onllwyn Male Voice Choir at the beautiful Calon Lan Centre, in Swansea.
Onllwyn Male Voice Choir recorded their album '50' to mark their 50th Anniversary, and what a sound it was! The venue was amazing and the choir were awesome, the perfect mixture for a great recording, before you even empty the van!
You will notice from the photos that Julie, who played piano on the album was wearing gloves while playing. At the time, we thought it was to prevent the sound of her nails from picking up in the microphones, while recording. Now we aren't so sure! Since speaking to Julie recently, we think she may have know something that we didn't about what was to come in the future 😂.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Onllwyn MVC and we are looking forward to seeing them back on stage in the not to distant future 🤞.
If you would like a copy of Onllwyn's album, you can get in touch with them on their Facebook page for more information. Likewise, if you would like information on recording an album with us, please get in touch 🎶
