Fflach Tradd

Fflach is a recording company that produces pop, rock, choral and traditional music, by recording some of Wales' finest artists. In existence for nearly 25 years, there is a large selection of CDs and cassettes available on the label.

Fflach was formed in 1981 by the brothers Richard and Wyn Jones, who were members of Welsh new wave group Ail Symudiad. The label recorded songs by Ail Symudiad and gave an opportunity for other groups to record on the label such as - Y Ficar, Eryr Wen, Malcolm Neon, Angylion Stanley, Y Diawled, Rocyn and Maffia Mr. Huws.

In 1997 Fflach decided to start a new label called fflach:tradd, a label to promote Welsh traditional music in Wales and abroad. 'Ffidil' and 'Datgan' were the fist CD's on this label and some of Wales' best fiddlers appeared on 'Ffidil' and leading traditional music singers from Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Brittany featured on 'Datgan'. Ceri Matthews, a famous Welsh piper was appointed as producer of this music and by now there are many CD's in the Fflach Tradd collection. Fflach Tradd artists have appeared throughout the world from Ireland to Vietnam, and the label has had excellent responses from a variety of countries. The CD's have sold in England, Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada and France.
