Welsh Music Scence competition - chance to win an Ipod

Can you recognise the artist that performed during the ‘Noson Pinaclau Pop’ in 1968? Then pay a visit to Bangor University’s stall during the National Eisteddfod to be in with a chance of winning an Ipod.

The competition is based on material from the Welsh Pop Archive, a unique collection of items related to Welsh pop music from the 40s to the present day, based in the School of Music at Bangor University. To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is name the artists in a collection of photos from the 60s. The winner will be announced during the Music Quiz at 1.00 on Thursday, August 9.

The Welsh music industry also provides the subject for a presentation at Bangor University’s stand on the Eisteddfod field at 12.30 on Thursday 9 August.
A presentation, Gwerthiant Cerddoraieth yn yr Oes Ddigidol, by Bangor Unviersity PhD student Steffan Wyn Thomas and Dafydd Roberts from Sain will share the results of recent research into the future of the Welsh music industry.

Sain and Bangor University have been cooperating on a KESS scheme, in the form of a three-year research PhD, to look at future models to increase the economic income from producing and using Welsh music.

The presentation forms part of Cerdd Iau- the School of Music’s day of activities at the Eisteddfod.

In addition to the presentation, there’s plenty of enjoyment to be had – and something to everyone’s taste.

The day begins with a Music Composing workshop at 11.00 and again at 2.30. The Workshop is led by Owain Llwyd and Peredur Glyn Davies.

Following a performance by Glain Dafydd on the harp at 12.00, and again at 2.00, there’s an opportunity to relax and have some fun in a Music Quiz that begins at 1.00. Come and find out who really knows their Welsh music inside out.

The day has a musical finale with a solo performance by singer, Ynyr Llwyd at 3.30.
