Y Ffin Fach are looking for local musicians
Mentrau Iaith Sir Ddinbych, Sir y Fflint and Wrecsam, Cymru Ifanc Wrecsam and the Urdd are looking for are looking for young
musicians who want to become part of the Welsh rock and pop scene in North East Wales.
Nia Evans, CIW Wrexham’s Officer, said that:
“Y Ffin Festival’s little sister at Y Ffin Fach L’etage in Wrexham on October 8th will give local bands from Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham the opportunity to come together and take part in a Battle of the Bands. This will be an exciting evening, admission is free, and in addition the popular band, Masters in France, will be headlining the evening. The band from Caernarfon have garnered considerable praise after airplay on Radio 1, and they were huge crowd-pleasers when they played Gwyl Y Ffin 2010 in Holywell”.
Y Ffin Fach will also host the first round of Battle of the Bands BBC/C2 2011. The winners will go on to the regional rounds, and perhaps to represent north Wales in the finals! The most promising bands of the evening will be offered the opportunity to record and burn a CD in a recording studio, and to play at Y Ffin Festival 2011.
Rebecca Davies from Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint said,
“Nobody from north Wales has won Battle of the Bands since Wrexham’s NO STAR in 2005. We want to change this! If you are between 16 – 21, can play in Welsh and think you have the talent to compete, come to L’etage on October 8th, and let’s see if we can get a band from the north crowned winners of Battle of the Bands 2011.”
