Gildas is the stage name for the singer-songwriter from Llansannan, Arwel Lloyd. He is well known as the co-writer and guitarist for the Al Lewis Band and since 2009 he's been ploughing his own furrow with a blend of folk roots and electro influences with his individual project Gildas. He has released many records that have received high praise from critics and the public and the second album Sgwennu Stori appeared on the short list for Welsh Language Album of the Year 2014 and Y Selar Best Albums of 2013. On his latest album, Paid â Deud, Arwel blends his guitar arrangements with the voices of Greta Isaac and Miriam Isaac to compile a collection of new verions of other people's songs.
