GUTO DAFIS

(WALES - UK)

Storyteller and musician

 

Guto Dafis is a singer of songs and teller of tales. His repertoire encompasses songs and tunes, in Welsh, English and sometimes Breton, traditional  and contemporary – a repertoire that has grown out of his own personal and musical landscape. His performances take you on a journey through stories of broken hearts and dysfunctional relationships, and celebrate the beautiful unsatisfactoriness of life, delivered with a combination of deep seriousness and dry humour. Distinctly and distinctively Welsh, there is also something European in his dramatic yet mat ter-of-fact vocal delivery and particular style of  diatonic accordion accompaniment. He performs solo, or with guitarist Daniel KilBride. He is also one of Jon Langford’s Men of Gwent – the South Wales band of Newport-born Chicago resident Jon Langford of The Mekons. Guto performs traditional tales and has featured at the Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival in the Vale of Glamorgan; Festival at the Edge in Shropshire; the Welsh Pavilion at the Festival Interceltique at Lorient, Brittany; Suns Peraulis Musichis des Minorancis, Udine, Italy; Aberystwyth Storytelling Festival, among the others.
