CLERA TODAY

What does 'Clera' mean?
It is not an acronym! It's an old Welsh word for the wandering minstrels - musicians and poets - of times gone by. Clerwr would be the minstrel himself (plural clerwyr); clera is the verb.

Alawon Cymru
More workshops and classes followed in our Alawon Cymru initiative which ran from May 2013 to June 2014, again supported by the Arts Council of Wales. Alawon Cymru included support for local tune clubs to learn and play Welsh traditional tunes across Wales as well as supporting workshops and individual totor sessions. These continue: see the latest information and a collection of tune sets on our website www.sesiwn.com.
