Bob Delyn a’r Ebillion – Dal i ‘Redig Dipyn Bach (Sain SCD2773, 2017)
Dal i ‘Redig Dipyn Bach is the fifth album by Bob Delyn a’r Ebillion, one of the leading folk music acts from Wales. Unlike other Welsh artists that draw influences from the Celtic music tradition, Bob Delyn a’r Ebillion has a folk-rock edge with deep Bob Dylan influences, highlighting the charismatic vocals of frontman Twm Morys.
The band features a mix of traditional instruments such as fiddle; folk-rock band drums, bass and electric guitar; American folk-style harmonica; plus musical instruments from other parts of the world such as the Breton bombard and the South American charango.
Vocals are in Welsh. The CD booklet includes the Welsh language lyrics with English-language descriptions.
Personnel: Twm Morys on vocals, acoustic guitar, harp and harmonica; Gorwell Roberts on metal strung harp, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin and charango; Edwin Humphreys on saxophone, bombard, cornet, trumpet and organ; Einir Humphreys on vocals; Einion Gruffud on saxophone and pigborn; Claire Jones on fiddle; Nikolas Davalan on bass and double bass; Rhydwen Mitchell on drums; and Gwyn Jones on drums and percussion.
