adwaith tour

adwaithThis September sees the first in a monthly series of tours by Welsh language bands taking in Glasgow, Manchester and London with Adwaith Mellt & Papur Wal   being the first to hit the road.

Conceived as an idea to present Welsh language music to new audiences by working alongside the best promoters in those cities, the first tour featuring Adwaith, Mellt and Papur Wal will visit Glasgow Poetry Club (September 4), Manchester Yes (5) and London Dalston The Victoria (6).

Adwaith have had a crazy past 12 months. An all female three-piece from Carmarthen, their debut album ‘Melyn’ was released to huge critical acclaim on Libertino Records and saw James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers) re-mix one of their singles. As well as performing countless club and festival shows they were also personally chosen by Gwenno and The Joy Formidable to open on their respective recent tours.


Mellt’s debut album ‘Mae’n Hawdd Pan Ti’n Ifanc’, released on Jigcal, won the Welsh Language Album of the Year prize last year and was shortlisted for the Welsh Music Prize last year. A three piece from Aberystwyth (now residing in Cardiff) they have been championed by Huw Stephens and received plays on R1 and 6music.

Papur Wal

Papur Wal, a three-piece from Cardiff, have recently released their second single ‘O’n Ni’n Ffrindia’ on Libertino Records and which got its premier on Marc Riley’s 6music show with LTW also reviewing the single.
