About Bryn Fôn

Bryn Fôn was born in Llanllyfni, Caernarfonshire.

He attended Ysgol Gynradd Llanllyfni and Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle before going on to study physical exercise and environmental studies at college. He began his career in entertainment by taking part in the opera Dic Penderyn in 1977. He formed the musical group Crysbas after leaving college, and Sobin a'r Smaeliaid in 1988. He began releasing albums with his band under his own name in 1994. He and his band later performed under the name Bryn Fôn a'r Band, releasing music under their own label laBelaBel.

Fôn became the first ever artists to play live on BBC Radio Cymru in 1977 and was partly responsible for expanding the popularity of Welsh-language pop music amongst Wales' youth.
