Ifor ap Glyn

Ifor has presented his work around the world, from China to Cameroon, and from Lithuania to the U.S. ; his poems have been translated into over a dozen languages. A mesmerising performer, he presents his Welsh language poems both unaccompanied and with backing tracks, and uses projections or paper handouts to convey the meaning of his words as required. In 1999 he performed in front of a 10,000 strong crowd, as part of the celebrations to mark the opening of the Senedd in Cardiff (Welsh Assembly) and he has been the National Poet of Wales since 2016.
