Headlining Dafydd Iwan a'r Band, Hergest, Nia Ben Aur

The  Dragon's  Fire  programme presented another fabulous evening of Welsh Pop and Rock.
A host of top Welsh artists including the legendary Dafydd Iwan and his band and seventies favourites Hergest from Aberystwyth performed.

There was also be a special appearance of the original cast from the 1974 production of the rock musical Nia Ben Aur The cast features members of some of the famous seventies bands such as Ac Eraill, Edward H Dafis, Sidan, Mynediad am Ddim fronted by Heather Jones, Clive Harpwood and Dewi Pws Morris.
Among the stars were girl band Pheena, Rhydian Bowen Phillips, former member of Wales' first boy band Mega, Elin Fflur and Bafta Cymru award winning actor and singer Ryland Teifi.

Aprox. 5,000 people came to cheer on the Welsh pop acts and Elin Fflur certainly got the crowd moving with 'Harbwr Diogel'

Many of the crowd had not seen a Welsh opera before and were singing and dancing (and laughing) to the antics of Dewi Pws who blew the audience away as 'the King'.

By the time Hergest and Dafydd Iwan were on, everyone were singing and dancing along and a great night was had by all. Lets hope Bryn can pull it off next year and bring us Tom Jones, now that would be a sensational catch!
