Claire also chooses Amen Corner’s 1968 debut album Round Amen Corner as her favourite Welsh album and inducts it in to the Welsh Music Hall of Fame.

The Welsh Music Podcast is a weekly podcast celebrating Welsh music and culture, past and present, and the people who helped shape it. Hosted by Neil and James, two friends and former colleagues, who share a passion for music and football – especially of the Welsh variety. From Anhrefn to Zabrinski we’ll cover it all, including obscure, emerging and established artists, across the Welsh and English language spectrum. Each episode will feature a music obsessive guest who has, in some way, put Welsh music on the map. They’ll be talking about their careers and giving an in-depth analysis of their favourite Welsh album
We’re also hoping to feature one-off documentary specials exploring key moments in Welsh culture.
Get in touch if you’re a new Welsh act as we’re going to be showcasing new and emerging bands and artists at the end of each episode.
