Cân i Gymru

The Choir are delighted that their Musical Director – Erfyl Owen(Bov) has made the short list for the Finalists in this year’s Cân i Gymru competition.

The eight shortlisted songs of the Cân i Gymru (Song for Wales) competition have been selected. And the eight will compete live on S4C on 1 March at Theatr Bryn Terfel, Pontio, Bangor, with the presenters Elin Fflur and Trystan Ellis Morris at the helm.

This year, S4C received 114 songs – the highest number to compete for some years.


The S4C film crew have been in the village filming to create a profile for Bov ready for the TV show next month. Bov has even more reason to feel proud of himself as taking part in the Show will be his son Hari and his pop group.

Llongyfarchiadau mawr i ti Bov ar cyrraedd y ffeinal o Cân i Gymru efo dy gân Cofio Hedd Wyn.
