“Yr Hwntws” is a Welsh Folk Music band. Its repertoire of traditional songs and tunes originate from Glamorgan and Gwent. The songs are sung in an ancient dialect known as “Gwenhwysig” or “Gwentian.”

“Gwentian” is the title of a CD by “Yr Hwntws”, produced by the Welsh Recording and Music company “Sain.”

Gregg Lynn founded the band in the early 1980s and, over the years, they have toured extensively in Europe as well as appearing on BBC, S4C and Radio Cymru.

“Yr Hwntws” is now made up of Gregg Lynn (vocals and guitar), Nia Lynn (vocals) Bernie KilBride (fiddle) Imogen O’Rourke (flute and vocals) Dan B. James (mandolin) and Dean Ryan (double bass).

The name “Yr Hwntws” refers to people from the Southern regions of Wales and the band is presently researching songs from those areas to be be recorded and produced, along with an explanatory booklet, in the summer of 2018, ready for the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff at the beginning of August.
