The Gentle Good To Release Plygain Christmas Carols EP

Gentle GoodTo follow up on his recent Chinese-Welsh folk fusion LP, ‘Y Bardd Anfarwol’, Gareth Bonello aka The Gentle Good will release a free Christmas EP on 1st December 2013 through Bubblewrap Collective.

The Plygeiniwch! EP is rooted in the Welsh Plygain singing tradition and draws specifically upon the religious songs performed during Christmas services across Wales. For this one-off recording, however, Bonello merges these normally a capella carols with John Fahey-esque guitar instrumentals. The resultant sound is an enchanting folk hybrid of American and Welsh culture that ushers in the festive spirit as celebrated through the generations.  /
