EVENTS - 2017

Telynor Cymru 2016 ended this year
It succeeded in teaching the gypsy way of playing our traditional tunes, thanks to the support of the Arts Council for Wales. It establshed groups of players to perform these tunes across Wales and in November 2016 celebrated the birth of the nationally-acclaimed Welsh gypsy harpist, John Roberts, Telynor Cymru in 1816 as a special event within the Gregynog Festival. The celebrations included a memorial celebration at the grave of John Roberts in Newtown and a concert at Gregynog by a harp choir formed from players who had been in learning within the project.

The 2017 Annnual General meeting was held on Tuesday August 8th in the conference building at this year's National Eisteddfod of Wales in Bodedern, Anglesey.

Clera is a partner again next year in Tŷ Gwerin in the National Eisteddfod which is being held in Cardiff Bay from Saturday, August 4 to Saturday August 11th.

Y Glerorfa performed four concerts in 2015, the first in Tŷ Siamas Concert in Dolgellau on January 24th.
