Happy Saint David's Day
Happy Saint David's Day to all our Welsh readers. I will be scoffing Welsh cakes and tinned lavarbread (from Parsons and Drangway's) in my Corgi socks, and listening to the wonderful Welsh singer Cate Le Bon to celebrate (as much as an Englishman is allowed). Iechyd da, boyos.
It is always preferable to hear a British singer's natural voice, without the added pretence of singing in an inauthentic American accent. Cate retains a pleasing Welsh lilt in her lovely singing voice with the sublime Shoeing the Bones (below). She manages this whilst living in Los Angeles funnily enough.
