Caerdroea

Good to see some one else loves Welsh tunes. A friend who used to run a Welsh band in Oxford, called ‘Pencerdd’ , once photocopied two books of Welsh tunes on his office copier for me.
I mix some of them into my busking/session repertoire. They make a nice change from the usual hegemonic Irish session diet.

Re: Caerdroin

Does anyone know how old this is, or who wrote it? Welsh or English trad?
