“If Welsh music is perennially considered the poor relation in the Celtic tradition, Allan Yn Y Fan are moving mountains to change all that.”

Press Release

For immediate release 20/07/2016


Leading Welsh band Allan Yn Y Fan announced today the launch of their first crowd-funding campaign to back the promotion of the band’s forthcoming album “NEWiD” ( Welsh for change / new identity – English) which will be released on Steam Pie Records Friday 16th September (SPCD1018S).

The band have already invested in the costs of recording, designing and producing the album – their first as a sextet – and are now asking for support to ensure that the new album reaches out to the widest possible audience.

Band spokesman Geoff Cripps said : “This album is a landmark album for the band representing as it does the first recording of the new six-piece line-up, as well as being the band’s sixth album release in our 20 years as a band. To be sure that the music is marketed effectively we need to employ specialist PR people and record pluggers.”

Linda Simmonds added :- “Those people who do come on board to back our campaign will find that we have lined up a number of rewards – some exclusive offers ranging from commissioning a new tune, Skype lessons with a member of the band, to hosting a house concert, or by purchasing a pre-release signed copy of ‘NEWiD’.”

The target the band has set is £2000 and the Crowdfunder campaign can be accessed here :- http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/ayyf-newid

Allan Yn Y Fan will be touring in support of the new album in Germany & Belgium between 8th & 18th September followed by their first tour of Wales since 2012 commencing at the Lyric Carmarthen on Friday 23rd September.
