Sunday Morning Coming Down

Yes, this is where I usually post a Country tune.

No, I’m not posting any today.

Yes, I expect there to be some complaints.

No, I don’t give a monkeys.

For today, March 1st, is St David’s day.

St David is the patron saint of Wales, and since I lived in that beautiful country for so long – I’ve been in London for over ten years now, but I still think of Cardiff as home – I couldn’t let the day pass without posting something appropriate.

What I wanted to do today, was post something Welsh, but still country.

You’ll be surprised to learn, it turns out that the seam that is Welsh country records is not a particularly rich one to mine.

So instead, since I doubt she’ll play any of her own records on BBC’s 6Music today, here’s a couple of tracks from Cerys Mattews’ really quite lovely Tir album, the second of which long-time readers may remember holds a special place in my heart:

Cerys Matthews – Ar Lan Y Môr

Cerys Matthews – Cwm Rhondda

Hapus Dydd Gŵyl Dewi.

Which is Welsh for “More soon”. Honest.
