 Welcome to FOLKWALES, home of Llantrisant Folk Club and FOLKWALES ONLINE MAGAZINE, which is a new concept in media publishing; news, views, reviews, features, articles and comment, concentrating on Wales and the World. FOLKWALES ONLINE MAGAZINE is temporarily closed for renovation and website rebuilding, but you can view the last edition by clicking on the right-hand icon. Editor Mick Tems apologises for your inconvenience, but promises that FOLKWALES OM will be back very soon - and the essential, comprehensive  ALL-WALES LISTINGS continues to be the winning folk/roots events website, with up-to-the-minute, detailed information displayed instantaneously. Please click on LISTINGS if you're going out tonight!   

The Folkwales logo is the Mari Lwyd with Eddie Kelly, owner of a used records emporium in Cardiff Market, which brought delight and amazement to shoppers. A visit to Eddie's house was like discovering a Music Hall museum, with Vesta Tilley, Harry Champion and Marie Lloyd 78 records neatly stacked everywhere. Eddie loved singing Music Hall songs just as much as he loved folk festivals, and he would always lead the Llantrisant Mari Lwyd ceremony, clad in his top hat. Eddie died a while back, and we felt that continuing the logo would be a lasting tribute. Our sympathies and love go to Eddie's widow, Phyllis.
