Young Welsh talent: Aled Rheon

7 August 2015

Singer songwriter Aled Rheon, performed at the Eisteddfod today.

He played this morning at the BBC Radio Cymru tent at 11:30 and later on, at 14:00 in the very chilled-out Caffi Maes B.

Aled is part of 12 artists that Horizons Cymru selected earlier this year. Horizons/Gorwelion supports independent, contemporary artists for one year and helps them promote their music throughout Wales and across borders. By January 2016, they will be looking for 12 other hidden talents.

Aled popped by the Cardiff University tent to have a chat with Llais y Maes after his Caffi Maes B gig. We talked about Horizons Cymru, his history with the Eisteddfod and his relation with the Welsh language. Watch our Periscope interview below.

Keep an eye on Aled Rheon, you’ll probably be seeing him on stage in Glastonbury soon…
