We are looking forward to welcoming several Welsh artists as part of the upcoming One World Many Languages: Endangered Languages and Cultural Heritage Festival program this summer. These will include poets, musicians, and a language teacher.

As we prepare for the 2013 program, which opens in a month and a half, we fondly remember the wonderful artists who inspired us in the 2009 Wales Smithsonian Cymru program. In this video, which includes an interview by curator Betty Belanus and which was produced by Charles Weber, Arfon Gwilym, Robin Huw Bowen, and Sioned Webb sing a traditional plygain carol in Welsh. Learn more about this tradition.
