Bob Delyn A’r Ebillion – Comin Abergwesyn (Abergwesyn Common).

Hey people! πŸ™‚

Today I have another Welsh, acoustic folk song for you, from a very renowned Welsh-Breton band, performing in both native languages of these regions, who have greatly influenced what we know as contemporary Welsh folk music scene. I don’t like all of their music as I just don’t always feel it but I like this reflective song.

The band’s name means Every Harp and the Pegs (I assume the pegs as in in a harp). I’ve heard the name Bob Delyn A’r Ebillion here and there for years, but never really actively listened to them until relatively recently, perhaps a year or so ago. And, funnily enough, it was even later that I realised what their name actually means, even though I knew the meaning of each of these words except for ebillion. But I was sure that what it must mean is that the guy who is the frontman of the group is called Bob Delyn (perhaps some unconscious association with Bob Dylan, lol) and the Ebillion must be how the other members call themselves for some reason. Only a lot later I read what it actually means and was totally stunned how could I not get it! πŸ˜€ The actual frontman of the band is called Twm Morys.

The song I want to share with you is about the beauty of Welsh landscapes and nature, and more exactly about

Abergwesyn Common
