Mim Twm Llai - Yr Eira Mawr
The album ‘Yr Eira Mawr’ is a diverse and dynamic mixture of songs that blends together folk, country, Americana, reggae and rock to create a unique and alternative acoustic style. There are 15 tracks featured on the album, including Mim Twm Llai’s interpretation of ‘Pam fod eira yn wyn?’ by Dafydd Iwan and ‘Merch y ffatri wlân’ by Meic Stevens. By drawing inspiration from his own local community in the slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales, Mim Twm Llai creates songs that are fun and vibrant whilst at the same time powerful and moving. There are number of themes featured throughout the album – from noting the history of legendary Welsh poet Hedd Wyn to asking provoking questions regarding World politics and environment issues.
‘Yr Eira Mawr’ is Mim Twm Llai’s third and final album, Gai Toms (lead singer and composer) will continue to compose and record songs in his own name and there’s no doubt that you will see him and his fellow band members performing in various locations around Wales and beyond!
