GWENNO - wins Welsh Language Album of the Year award

Following excellent reviews for her just-released debut solo album ‘Y DYDD OLAF’, GWENNO has been awarded the Welsh Language Album of the Year at the annual Eisteddfod festival, a celebration of all things Welsh.

Of winning the award Gwenno says: “I think that celebrating the fact that so many Welsh albums have been released this year is important, it doesn’t really matter who the winner is because no one piece of music is better than the other. So I’d like to say a huge congratulations to all those who have managed to create an album this year, and cheers to the Eisteddfod for acknowledging contemporary music – here’s to DIY!” Catch GWENNO live on the below UK tour dates:
