On Monday the 13th of June Taith Gŵyl Dewin a Doti (Dewin and Doti Festival Roadshow) starts its tour of Wales on Anglesey followed then with a three week tour across Wales.
Following a tendering process last October, Carys John from Ffa-la-la was commissioned to lead the festival on the theme ‘Pobl Sy’n Ein Helpu’ (People Who Help Us). As part of the tender Carys John composed 10 new original Welsh songs on the theme, as well as the cd, an activity book featuring numerous activities based on the Foundation Phase has been published.
Dr Gwenllian Lansdown Davies, Mudiad Meithrin’s Chief Executive said:
“This Resource Pack and the cd is fantastic. The songs on the cd are lively and catchy and are very easy for children (and adults!) to learn. My favourite song it the Mudiad’s new Anthem – “Un Teulu Mawr” meaning ‘One Big Family’, and there will be an opportunity for everybody to sing-along with Dewin at the end of every show.”
The festival will visit Cemaes, Anglesey; Theatr Seilo, Caernarfon; Y Ganolfan Porthmadog; Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay; Catrin Finch Centre, Wrexham and Ysgol Dafydd Llwyd, Newtown during the first week (13 – 17 June) before contunuing to travel through mid-Wales during the second week before finishing the roadshow in the south at the end of the month (for full details look at the poster below).
Carys John said:
“When I heard that I had been awarded the tender I was over the moon! It will be lovely to hear all the songs that I’ve composed being sung by all the young children throughout Wales. I’m looking forward to meeting all the children and their families on the Dewin and Doti Festival Roadshow which will tour throughout Wales from 13 June to 1 July when we will all be singing the songs as part of the show that will be performed on the tour.”
