Maffia Mr Huws and Guests
This recent Bank Holiday saw the return of Bethesda’s annual celebration of live music, “Pesda Roc” at Neuadd Ogwen.
The weekend kicked off on Saturday night, with intimate sets from Lastigband, Argrph, Phalcons, and DJ Delweddau Hen Dduwiau in the bar; but there was a definite buzz surrounding Sunday’s upcoming climax of the two day festival; local legends Maffia Mr Huws were back.

Welsh Rebel Outpost
We came together to celebrate the music of those who are no longer with us, a list that sadly and ultimately grows longer as that evil beast called time passes by…
To remember Jonny Fflaps, Barry Cyrff, Al Maffia and Bern Elfyn Presli.
There are more (too many)… like the recent loss of Maeyc Hewitt (Ectogram) who is added to the list of Edi Filmstar (4Q), Les Morrison, Dave Griffiths (Joie de Vivre), O’Malley (Toilets), Ron Watt (Last Rights), Hugh Hughes (Y Brodyr), Chris Wright (Patchwork) and others who have contributed to our wonderful local music scene.

Today is when it starts getting serious – Day 3 and the weekend is here. All the venues are in full swing, little sub-festivals on the go, folk, comedy, DJs, spoken word, art, beer! Fringe gigs taking place and kebab throwing competitions and brain curdling karaoke (which has nothing to do with Focus, that’s just Wrexham!).

Those who are partial to my random acts of Tweetness will know I’m quite partial to a bit of Radio Rhydd; that’s an understatement, as I’m partial to a whole lotta Rhydd…
And I’ve been banging on about it since I saw them last summer… The Welsh Scene needs Radio Rhydd… but that too is an understatement… The whole scene needs Radio Rhydd.

The scene is full of bands making great music but saying FUCK ALL…
