-Hello. I'm Ifan Jones Evans.

0:00:000:00:02

-I'm in Llanfair Caereinion...

0:00:020:00:04

-..for a Noson Lawen featuring

-a special family - the Penbryns.

0:00:040:00:08

-Penbryn is a farm in the hills

-between Meifod and Pontrobert...

0:00:090:00:13

-..where Linda and her brother Roy

-were raised.

0:00:130:00:16

-They were two thirds

-of the iconic folk group, Plethyn.

0:00:160:00:19

-Tonight,

-we're going to have a fun evening...

0:00:200:00:22

-..in the company of their family

-and friends.

0:00:230:00:26

-Roy's folk group will warm us up.

-Please welcome Hen Fegin.

-# On the moor of Tredegar

-nuts and berries all round

0:00:500:00:54

-# On the moor of Tredegar

-May's flowers abound

0:00:540:00:57

-# On the moor of Tredegar

-the apples grow well

0:00:580:01:01

-# On the moor of Tredegar

-my sweetheart doth dwell

0:01:020:01:05

-# On the moor of Tredegar

-my sweetheart doth dwell

0:01:050:01:09

-# My sweetheart would stay with me

-many a night

0:01:090:01:13

-# My sweetheart and I argued often,

-that's right

0:01:130:01:16

-# My sweetheart was pretty

-and lit up when she laughed

0:01:170:01:20

-# My sweetheart, she almost

-broke my poor heart in half

0:01:200:01:24

-# My sweetheart, she almost

-broke my poor heart in half

0:01:240:01:28

-# My heart's not broken,

-but I am still in pain

0:01:460:01:50

-# Thinking of my sweetheart

-who has gone so far away

0:01:500:01:53

-# There are plenty of girls,

-far and near

0:01:540:01:57

-# But that doesn't matter,

-my sweetheart is better

0:01:580:02:01

-# But that doesn't matter,

-my sweetheart is better

0:02:010:02:05

-# All you nice boys, to one be true

0:02:050:02:09

-# Avoid anyone nasty

-whose beauty beguiles you

0:02:090:02:12

-# Love is like the tide

-swelling as it comes in

0:02:130:02:16

-# The boy who gets it right

-will hear the church bells ring

0:02:160:02:20

-# The boy who gets it right

-will hear the church bells ring

0:02:200:02:24

-# The boy who gets it right

0:02:390:02:42

-# Will hear the church bells ring #

0:02:420:02:49

-Thank you.

0:02:510:02:52

-Thank you, Bryn, Roy, Jac and Rhys.

0:02:590:03:02

-Excellent.

0:03:030:03:04

-It's great to be here

-in Llanfair Caereinion.

0:03:080:03:11

-I always get a warm welcome here.

-You're kind in Llanfair Caereinion.

0:03:110:03:15

-Do you agree?

0:03:160:03:17

-Do you agree?

-

-Yes!

0:03:170:03:18

-It's been nice getting to know

-some of the extended Penbryn family.

0:03:180:03:24

-I know the women quite well -

-Linda, Lisa, Gwenno and Mari.

0:03:240:03:30

-I have a story

-about Gwenno, Mari and Lisa.

0:03:300:03:35

-They went on holiday

-a few years back.

0:03:350:03:38

-They came across a nightclub

-which said "ladies only" outside.

0:03:390:03:45

-Linda's girls are quite mischievous

-so they went to take a look.

0:03:460:03:51

-"Ladies only? What's going on here?"

-they asked.

0:03:510:03:54

-There were four floors

-with different men on every floor.

0:03:550:03:59

-"Up you go and take your pick,"

-was the reply.

0:03:590:04:02

-Exciting!

0:04:030:04:04

-They were on holiday

-so why not take a look?

0:04:050:04:07

-Up they went to the first floor.

0:04:080:04:10

-There was a sign on the door which

-said, "Short and plain men here."

0:04:110:04:15

-No-one wants a short and plain man.

-Sorry if you're a short man.

0:04:160:04:20

-They were boring men.

0:04:210:04:25

-So the girls said,

-"We'll go up to the second floor."

0:04:250:04:28

-So up they went to the second floor.

0:04:280:04:30

-There was a sign which said,

-"Tall and plain men here."

0:04:310:04:36

-"We don't want a boring person,

-do we?"

0:04:360:04:39

-"Height helps

-but we don't want anyone boring.

0:04:400:04:43

-"We'll go up again."

0:04:430:04:44

-Up they went to the third floor.

0:04:450:04:46

-On the door, the sign said...

0:04:470:04:49

-.."Tall, interesting, clever,

-good-looking men here."

0:04:500:04:56

-What else does a woman want?

0:04:560:04:59

-They decided to go in.

0:04:590:05:03

-"Whoa, whoa!" said Mari.

0:05:030:05:05

-"There's one floor left.

0:05:050:05:07

-"It gets better every time.

0:05:070:05:09

-"We'll go up to the fourth floor."

0:05:090:05:12

-"Go on," said the others.

0:05:120:05:14

-They went up to the fourth floor.

0:05:140:05:16

-They were excited,

-rubbing their hands.

0:05:160:05:19

-They were looking forward

-to find out what was there.

0:05:190:05:22

-On the door, the sign said,

-"There are no men here.

0:05:220:05:26

-"This floor was created to prove

-it's impossible to please a woman!"

0:05:260:05:30

-We're going to change the mood now.

0:05:370:05:39

-It's Linda onstage next.

0:05:390:05:42

-She's going to perform a song

-she wrote...

0:05:420:05:45

-..after the family lost their

-mother, called Siwrne Ddi-Ben-Draw.

0:05:450:05:49

-We're big fans of The Snowman film,

-Raymond Briggs' story, in our house.

0:05:500:05:55

-We watch it every Christmas.

0:05:550:05:57

-I wrote this song

-after we watched the film.

0:05:570:06:00

-It was the Christmas

-after we'd lost Mam.

0:06:010:06:03

-It's about the desire to escape

-from the shackles of the world...

0:06:040:06:08

-..to somewhere else

-with the dear person you've lost.

0:06:080:06:14

-The song was a help

-and a comfort to me.

0:06:140:06:16

-It's a personal song and the reasons

-for writing it might be selfish...

0:06:160:06:21

-..but if someone else gets comfort

-from listening to it, that's great.

0:06:210:06:26

-# The little boy and his dear friend

0:06:330:06:36

-# Are sailing through the sky

0:06:360:06:39

-# On an amazing adventure

0:06:400:06:43

-# Under the moonlit sky

0:06:430:06:46

-# And everyone feels down

0:06:460:06:49

-# At the break of day

0:06:500:06:53

-# The sweet dream of the little boy

0:06:530:06:57

-# Shattered on the ground

0:06:570:07:00

-# It's warm on the hearth

0:07:020:07:05

-# But despite the fire's warmth

0:07:050:07:09

-# The smile on a precious face

0:07:090:07:12

-# Is frozen in the frame

0:07:120:07:15

-# But the clock strikes twelve

0:07:150:07:18

-# Calling on me

0:07:190:07:22

-# To escape like the little boy

0:07:220:07:25

-# To a world of fantasy

0:07:260:07:29

-# If I close my eyes

0:07:300:07:34

-# And close them tight enough

0:07:340:07:37

-# We could go up together

0:07:370:07:40

-# Above the white clouds

0:07:410:07:43

-# And fly hand in hand

0:07:440:07:47

-# Where the sky is always blue

0:07:470:07:50

-# Two white doves hovering

0:07:500:07:54

-# Far from the world's din

0:07:540:07:57

-# When the home

-that was so welcoming

0:07:590:08:03

-# Has turned its back fully

0:08:030:08:06

-# And the lights of the sanctuary

0:08:060:08:09

-# Have dimmed in the night

0:08:090:08:12

-# Where there's nothing and no-one

-in this world

0:08:130:08:16

-# That's a comfort to me

0:08:160:08:19

-# I grab hold of the dream

0:08:200:08:23

-# Relive the fantasy

0:08:230:08:26

-# If I close my eyes

0:08:280:08:31

-# And close them tight enough

0:08:320:08:34

-# We could go up together

0:08:350:08:38

-# Above the white clouds

0:08:380:08:41

-# And fly hand in hand

0:08:420:08:44

-# Where the sky is always blue

0:08:440:08:47

-# Two white doves hovering

0:08:480:08:51

-# Far from the world's din

0:08:510:08:55

-# When the loss is almost too great

0:08:570:09:01

-# And the world's lost its lustre

0:09:010:09:04

-# The longing overwhelms us

0:09:050:09:07

-# And the hurt cuts so deep

0:09:080:09:11

-# The clock will strike twelve

0:09:110:09:14

-# Calling on us

0:09:140:09:17

-# To escape like the little boy

0:09:180:09:21

-# To a world of fantasy

0:09:210:09:24

0:09:250:09:29

-# Where the sky is always blue

-# Two white doves hovering

0:09:450:09:49

-# Far from the world's din

0:09:490:09:52

-# We'll sail towards the horizon

0:09:520:09:55

-# Not worrying about what's to come

0:09:560:09:58

-# On the adventure that's unending

0:09:590:10:02

-# On the journey with no end

0:10:020:10:07

-# On the journey with no end #

0:10:090:10:18

-That was lovely.

0:10:310:10:32

-Thank you very much Linda,

-Gwenno, Dave and Lowri.

0:10:340:10:37

-Wonderful.

0:10:380:10:39

-Linda's daughters are next onstage.

0:10:390:10:43

-Mari, Gwenno and Lisa

-started Sorela in 2014.

0:10:430:10:49

-Since then,

-their unique a cappella sound...

0:10:490:10:52

-..has enchanted audiences

-across the country.

0:10:520:10:55

-When we decided to be just us three

-and form a group...

0:10:570:11:01

-..we thought of a number of names

-but they weren't suitable.

0:11:010:11:05

-Things like Flamingos.

0:11:050:11:06

-A Welsh folk group called Flamingos

-just wouldn't work.

0:11:070:11:10

-Gwenno was living in Florence

-for three months.

0:11:100:11:14

-She sent a text saying, "What

-do you think of the word 'sorella'?

0:11:140:11:18

-"It means sister.

0:11:180:11:20

-"It's a nice word.

0:11:200:11:21

-"We could take out one of the Ls

-to make it sound nicer in Welsh."

0:11:210:11:25

-That's what we did.

0:11:260:11:27

-# When I was at one

0:11:290:11:34

-# With the wind and rain

0:11:340:11:39

-# When I was at one

0:11:410:11:46

-# With the stones and the earth

0:11:460:11:50

-# When I was at one

-with the wind and rain

0:11:510:11:59

-# When I followed

0:12:010:12:06

-# The waves of the sea

0:12:070:12:11

-# Every crow and seagull

0:12:110:12:15

-# Celebrating

-the colour of their feathers

0:12:150:12:21

-# When I respected

0:12:220:12:24

-# The waves of the sea

0:12:250:12:30

-# Why can't we put the world

-back in its place?

0:12:310:12:36

-# Why can't we carry the burden?

0:12:360:12:41

-# Why can't we put

-all the pieces back?

0:12:420:12:46

-# Our chapter in history

-will be senseless

0:12:470:12:53

-# When you see

0:12:550:12:58

-# The darkness on our horizon

0:12:590:13:04

-# When you hear

0:13:050:13:08

-# The tide filling the air

0:13:090:13:14

-# When you see the darkness

0:13:150:13:17

-# On our horizon

0:13:170:13:22

-# Only you, you and me

0:13:220:13:25

-# We'll have regrets

0:13:250:13:28

-# Why can't we put the world

-back in its place?

0:13:290:13:33

-# Why can't we carry the burden?

0:13:330:13:38

-# Why can't we put

-all the pieces back?

0:13:390:13:44

-# Our chapter in history

-will be senseless

0:13:440:13:50

-# When we will be

0:13:520:13:55

-# Just dust on the hillside

0:13:550:14:01

-# What colour will our time be

0:14:020:14:06

-# Just us in the picture

0:14:060:14:10

-# Our world was clean

0:14:110:14:13

-# But clean for how long?

0:14:130:14:19

-# But clean for how long?

0:14:200:14:24

-# But clean

0:14:250:14:32

-# For how long? #

0:18:300:18:36

-Did you know that?

0:18:360:18:38

-You did!

0:18:390:18:40

-How?

0:18:410:18:42

-That was great.

0:18:420:18:43

-So I have a connection

-through marriage with Penbryn.

0:18:430:18:47

-That's better than nothing.

0:18:470:18:49

-Thank you to Aneira once more.

0:18:490:18:51

-I have the honour of introducing

-a close friend of the family now.

0:18:540:18:59

-He's an undertaker by trade

-so I hope no-one dies of laughter!

0:18:590:19:04

-See what I did there?

0:19:040:19:06

-Sorry. His jokes are much better.

0:19:060:19:09

-Geraint Peate.

0:19:090:19:12

0:19:230:19:25

-I was almost late coming here.

0:19:260:19:30

-I'd been to the vet's place

-to pick up the missus's cat.

0:19:300:19:35

-It's a tomcat.

0:19:370:19:40

-He's dirty.

0:19:400:19:41

-He used to come up to you,

-lift up its tail...

0:19:420:19:45

-..and pee on your leg.

0:19:450:19:47

-So I put that right.

0:19:470:19:49

-I took it to the vet.

0:19:500:19:52

-I came home this evening.

0:19:520:19:54

-The missus said, "Remember

-to take the little pussy...

0:19:560:20:00

-"..put it in the garage

-and make sure it's in its basket.

0:20:010:20:04

-"Give it something to drink."

0:20:040:20:07

-I put the cat in the box...

0:20:070:20:10

-..and went indoors.

0:20:100:20:13

-I was going to fetch

-a saucer of milk.

0:20:140:20:17

-But I'd been fixing the car.

0:20:180:20:21

-I had a saucer of petrol

-on the ground.

0:20:210:20:24

-Next thing,

-the cat was drinking the petrol.

0:20:250:20:29

-Once it had done that,

-it was running around the garage.

0:20:320:20:38

-Then it fell down in a heap.

0:20:380:20:40

-So I went to get the missus.

0:20:410:20:44

-I said,

-"The little pussy's fallen down."

0:20:450:20:48

-"Oh, dear me," she said.

0:20:490:20:53

-"What's the matter?

-Has little pussy died?"

0:20:530:20:56

-"No, only ran out of petrol."

0:20:560:20:58

-I was in the pub the other night.

0:21:100:21:13

-A bloke came in through the door.

0:21:140:21:17

-He was flustered.

0:21:180:21:19

-He went up to the bar manager

-and said...

0:21:200:21:23

-.."Excuse me, do you have a large

-black cat with a white collar?"

0:21:230:21:29

-"Yes."

0:21:300:21:31

-"Thank goodness for that.

0:21:310:21:33

-"I thought I'd run over the vicar."

0:21:330:21:36

-Wasn't it nice

-listening to Linda Griffiths?

0:21:420:21:48

-I've always fancied her.

0:21:480:21:50

-Her voice is so melodic

-and wonderful.

0:21:520:21:57

-She's quite shapely too...

0:21:580:22:01

-..considering her age.

0:22:010:22:03

-Jac and Roy look older now.

0:22:080:22:12

-They were coming home

-from somewhere, I don't know where.

0:22:140:22:18

-They passed a bridge.

0:22:190:22:21

-They came across two old men.

0:22:210:22:24

-One had thrown the other

-over the bridge...

0:22:240:22:27

-..and grabbed him by his legs.

0:22:280:22:30

-Roy and Jac looked at them.

0:22:310:22:34

-In a minute, he pulled him up.

0:22:340:22:38

-He had caught a whopper of a salmon.

0:22:390:22:41

-Jac said, "Goodness.

0:22:430:22:44

-"Next time we come to a bridge,

-we'll see if we can catch a salmon."

0:22:450:22:49

-"OK," said Roy.

0:22:500:22:51

-They went on for a few miles

-and they arrived at a bridge.

0:22:520:22:57

-"Oh, we'll have a go here,"

-said Roy.

0:22:570:23:00

-"Champion."

0:23:000:23:01

-So, Roy lowered Jac down...

0:23:010:23:06

-..over the bridge and held him down.

0:23:070:23:10

-Half an hour passed.

0:23:110:23:14

-Roy said,

-"Haven't you caught a fish yet?"

0:23:140:23:19

-"No," said Jac.

0:23:190:23:21

-"You'd better pull me up now.

-There's a train coming."

0:23:220:23:25

-I was at the British Legion's

-annual dinner.

0:23:330:23:38

-They'd brought out the plates.

0:23:380:23:42

-An old man was sat opposite me...

0:23:430:23:46

-..just staring at his meal.

0:23:470:23:51

-In a little while, I said...

0:23:520:23:53

-.."What's the matter?

-Aren't you hungry? Are you ill?"

0:23:540:23:58

-"I am hungry," he said.

-"But I've forgotten my teeth."

0:23:580:24:02

-I put my hand in pocket

-and had a fumble.

0:24:040:24:09

-"Here's a set of teeth," I said.

0:24:090:24:12

-"Try these."

0:24:120:24:13

-"I can't eat with these," he said.

0:24:140:24:16

-"They're too big."

0:24:170:24:18

-I put my hand in my other pocket.

0:24:190:24:21

-I found another set.

0:24:210:24:24

-"I can eat with these just fine,"

-he said.

0:24:250:24:28

-"Are you a dentist?"

0:24:280:24:30

-"No, I'm an undertaker."

0:24:300:24:32

-Thank you. Goodnight.

0:24:350:24:37

-Thank you, Geraint Peate!

0:24:440:24:46

-It's time for an item with Jac

-and the Penbryn children now.

0:24:480:24:52

-Plethyn were formed

-in the late 1970s.

0:24:530:24:55

-Since then, they've become one

-of our most successful folk groups.

0:24:560:25:00

-It was in 1979 that we recorded

-the LP, as it was then...

0:25:020:25:07

-..Blas Y Pridd.

0:25:080:25:09

-We sang for a couple of years

-before then.

0:25:090:25:12

-We were together

-for quite a few years, 25 years.

0:25:120:25:17

-It was in 1999

-that we decided to call it a day.

0:25:170:25:21

-We only get back together

-if Noson Lawen asks us!

0:25:220:25:26

-Nicely!

0:25:260:25:27

-Or if the Eisteddfod

-is in our birthplace.

0:25:270:25:30

-We sang when the Eisteddfod

-was in Meifod...

0:25:310:25:34

-..because it was

-on the doorstep of our birthplace.

0:25:340:25:37

-To perform Can Melangell, based on

-the legend of St Melangell...

0:25:370:25:41

-..please welcome Plethyn.

0:25:410:25:44

-# Have you heard the story

0:25:570:26:00

-# About a little hare in a meadow

0:26:000:26:03

-# That ran under Melangell's apron

0:26:040:26:08

-# Once upon a time?

0:26:080:26:10

-# The saint protected it

0:26:100:26:13

-# From the cruel prince's hunt

0:26:140:26:17

-# And gave it the freedom

0:26:170:26:21

-# To run through the grass

0:26:210:26:24

-# Hares and foxes

0:26:260:26:29

-# In meadows, vales and hills

0:26:500:26:53

-# The beauty of a creature

0:27:010:27:03

-# Is beyond all value

0:27:040:27:06

-# In the heaven of its habitat

0:27:070:27:10

-# In ditches, hedges and thickets

0:27:110:27:14

-# Let not a single valley

0:27:140:27:18

-# Or a single hill conceal betrayal

0:27:180:27:21

-# Or deprive any creature

0:27:210:27:25

0:40:230:40:27

-# My faithful dog awaits my return

0:40:270:40:33

-# My home is in distant Wales

0:40:330:40:39

-# The sails are frozen and forlorn

0:40:400:40:44

-# Ai-o Santiana!

-Thank you

-to Linda, Hen Fegin and Sorela.

0:41:180:41:21

-I'm familiar

-with rehearsing with my family.

0:41:240:41:27

-Roy's my brother

-and Jac lived next door.

0:41:270:41:30

-The girls

-are having similar experiences now.

0:41:300:41:34

-The family dynamics can be a help

-but can be a hindrance.

0:41:340:41:38

-On the whole,

-everyone pulls together quite well.

0:41:390:41:42

-It can create tension

-within a family.

0:41:420:41:45

-Everyone has their own views.

0:41:450:41:47

-I think we're doing OK.

0:41:480:41:49

-What works for us is the women

-tell the men what to do!

0:41:490:41:53

-Dear people of Montgomeryshire,

-the evening is almost over.

0:41:550:41:59

-I'm sure that the Penbryn family

-have a lot of talent.

0:41:590:42:04

-Give them a round of applause.

0:42:040:42:06

-We can't let you go home tonight...

0:42:110:42:13

-..without a performance

-of this next song.

0:42:130:42:17

-It's an anthem!

0:42:170:42:18

-It's my pleasure to say

-that the stage is packed.

0:42:180:42:21

-Please welcome back Sorela,

-Hen Fegin, Linda, Aneira Evans...

0:42:210:42:26

-..and Penybontfawr Male Voice Choir.

-# The sun is high

0:42:510:42:53

-# Above Rhos y Glascoed

0:42:530:42:56

-# Machines see off July cutting hay

0:42:580:43:02

-# The balers far away

-like bees making honey

0:43:050:43:09

-# And the small border

-is full of marigolds

0:43:110:43:16

-# An old man in a straw hat

0:43:180:43:21

-# Rakes the hedges

0:43:210:43:23

-# The children play with the dogs

0:43:250:43:30

-# Lads use pitchforks

-to lift bales on to the trailer

0:43:330:43:37

-# They should be careful

-not to draw thunder with their noise

0:43:400:43:44

-# The sun is low

-and the haze is blue in Pentyrch

0:43:470:43:52

-# The family of the land

-heads for home

0:43:540:43:59

-# The last load

-comes home for the day

0:44:010:44:07

-# The smell of hay fills the air

0:44:080:44:13

-# People gather at the table,

-the conversation lingers

0:44:160:44:20

-# They make fun

-of the girl who helps out

0:44:230:44:27

-# On the hill, the cows laze around

0:44:300:44:35

-# The swallow says

-that it will never rain

0:44:370:44:42

-# Under the chestnut tree is shade

0:44:430:44:47

-# In the shade is a fine barrel

0:44:470:44:50

-# Drinking cider in the meadow

0:44:510:44:54

-# Sighs turn into smiles

0:44:540:44:59

-# Oh, for a summer

-like those in Meifod

0:45:000:45:03

-# Yesterday's cider

0:45:040:45:06

-# Turns into champagne

0:45:070:45:10

-# The lovers' moon shines gold

0:45:190:45:23

-# The night is warm in its light

0:45:260:45:30

-# Looking for clover in the grasses

0:45:330:45:38

-# And searching for words

-in your eyes

0:45:410:45:46

-# Sweet is the breeze

-that blows through Mathrafal

0:45:470:45:53

-# Night's gown is silken on the land

0:45:550:46:00

-# The harebells grow

-along the hedges

0:46:020:46:06

-# They sing that summer is too short

0:46:100:46:15

-# Under the chestnut tree is shade

0:46:160:46:19

-# In the shade, a fine barrel

0:46:200:46:23

-# Drinking cider in the meadow

0:46:230:46:26

-# Sighs turn into smiles

0:46:270:46:31

-# Oh, for a summer

-like those in Meifod

0:46:320:46:37

-# Yesterday's cider

0:46:380:46:42

-# Turns into champagne #

0:46:430:46:49
