Video Title:
Meredydd Evans - 'Welsh Folk Songs' [Interview Video]
Description:
Watch an interview video with Meredydd Evans. In 1954, Evans recorded his landmark album 'Welsh Folk Songs.' Since then, Evans has created a long and distinguished career as a professor of philosophy, writer, performer, television producer, and above all, advocate for the Welsh language and culture. 'Welsh Folk Songs' is available on CD and digital.

Some secular songs were lost altogether, but enough survived to reflect the old traditions, and folksong periodically flourished during subsequent eras. Welsh balladeer Meredydd Evans sings his favorites.
