Calan - Dinas

Sold out
£12.98

Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life as Calan perform songs and tunes from their soon to be released album - Dinas. Infectious guitar rhythms and high voltage routines give way to beautiful and haunting songs as they tour throughout 2015 to celebrate their latest release. Amongst the traditional Welsh melodies and brand new original material, they breathe fire into the folk tale of Merlin and The Two Dragons: A song released as a single in March that tells the story of why there is a dragon on the Welsh flag.
The title Dinas is taken from the name Dinas Emrys; a mountain in Gwynedd, North Wales. During the 5th century, it is believed two dragons once slept within the mountain hidden in the depths of a secret lake. During the night the dragons would awake and fight making the ground shake and tremor. When the Celtic king Vortigern attempted to build a castle on the hill in the 5th century the stones and walls were repeatedly shaken to the ground. The legend says the problem was solved by a nine year old boy gifted with magic. His name was Merlin and Wales had found a great magician and the emblem for its flag.
In 1945, the site was excavated by archaeologists who discovered a lake and the ruins of a fortress dating to Vortigern’s time. The walls showed signs of having been rebuilt several times. So be careful where you tread....
Calan began spreading the tale at venues in Wales during March before heading out for two tours of North America in June/July and September. After that it’s back to tour the rest of the UK in November with venues stretching from Essex to Leeds and hopefully travelling in their new van.
Also keep an eye on Calan’s website and facebook page throughout the year where you will be able to learn the tune of the month and clog step of the month. These will be quick video lessons for anyone wanting to learn a few tunes featured on the album or pick up some Welsh clog steps.
To coincide with the tour in November people can join in the search for their own dragons by following a set of clues given out at the gigs and on the website. The clues will lead to 2 ornamental dragons hidden near a mountain somewhere in Wales. Best of luck!
