New FolkWales Magazine and FolkWales websites

The FolkWales and FolkWales Online Magazine sites have moved. From October 1, 2015 this site will no longer be updated, and from the start of next year will no longer be available.  You can access the new FolkWales site at www/folk.wales, and for the online magazine go to www.folk.wales/magazine.   Or simply click on the links in the heading above.

LLANTRISANT FOLK CLUB moved to Pontyclun Institute Athletic Club in May 2014, with perfect accessibility and a large car park ... visit the Folk Club page for more information.

 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 complete 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. CD REVIEWS have been slowly building up, and we have published a selection to open the floodgates and ease the waiting. 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.
