AR LOG - GOREUON AR LOG / THE BEST OF AR LOG

AR LOG - GOREUON AR LOG / THE BEST OF AR LOG

“Ar Log, I remeber meeting you in Lorient as if it were yesterday, and I’m glad you took my advice and stayed together as a band”
John Sheahan, Dubliners
“Thank you Ar Log for flying the flag for Wales accross the world. And thanks for looking after me in Canada when I was lonely and feeling down”
Dan Ar Braz, Brittany
“Ar Log is one of the most durable and best-loved Welsh folk groups. The band’s extraordinary level of musicianship, manly and sensitive Welsh language vocals, and spirited clog dancing can all be experienced on their recordings. Although there are many superb musicians in Wales, any exploration of the region’s music should start with, or at least include, a selection of Ar Log’s recordings”
Christiana Roden, music journalist, New York
Ar Log was formed in August 1976 specifically to represent Wales at a Celtic Festival in Lorient, Brittany. Following the festival, on the advice of The Dubliners, the band decided to continue to perform and earn their living through touring. The band succeeded in touring full time for seven years, spending nine months of each year abroad.

The band has performed in twenty one countries accross the UK, Europe and North and South America promoting Welsh traditional music and songs.
Between 1978 and 1996 Ar Log managed to release ten albums and two singles, and this doulble CD contains the very best of the eponymous series Ar Log I – Ar Log VI plus one bonus track recorded live in Germany.
A special book outlining Ar Log’s career over the first twenty years, and including the tunes composed by members Iolo Jones and Stephen Rees, was published by ‘Carreg Gwalch’ in 1996.
