When I visited Llandeilo last summer it struck me as a quietly beautiful South Wales town with a really fantastic ice-cream / chocolate / sweet shop and access to rolling countryside and numerous old hilltop castles. I didn’t know at the time that the town hosted the 2008 World Sheepdog Trials, or that it was the birthplace of Stefan Cush of The Men They Couldn’t Hang.

And I had no idea that Owain Gwilym and Angharad Van Rijswijk were probably busy somewhere nearby working away on what they describe as their ‘half-Welsh / half-Dutch Elekctro-Folk-Rave’. Breakthrough features ESSA, and is quite rightly getting a lot of love, not least by BBC 6 Music, who included Trwbador in their recent #Blog6Music show.
