1970s onwards - Welsh music hub

Edward H Dafis, Meic Stevens, Geraint Jarman, Crys, Brân, Hergest, Bando – just some of the big names of the Welsh rock scene who came to Ty’n Llan to relax, and sometimes even to write songs (quite often on the backs of beer mats!), while they were recording their albums at the Sain recording studio during the 1970s and later. The original studio was in old farm outbuildings at Gwernafalau some 300 metres from the village centre, and a new studio was later built on a former RAF site 1½ miles down the road.
