GUTO DAFIS

Guto Dafis is a singer of songs and teller of tales. His repertoire encompasses songs and tunes, in Welsh and English, traditional and contemporary – a repertoire that has grown out of his own personal and musical landscapeHis performances take you on a journey through stories of broken hearts and dysfunctional relationships, and celebrate the beautiful unsatisfactoriness of life, delivered with a combination of deep seriousness and dry humour. Distinctly and distinctively Welsh, there is also something European in his dramatic yet matter-of-fact vocal delivery and particular style of diatonic accordion accompaniment.  He is also a fantastic dancer!
He is also one of Jon Langford’s Men of Gwent – the South Wales band of Newport-born Chicago resident Jon Langford of The Mekons.
