Line-up changes for Allan Yn Y Fan

Welsh traditional band Allan Yn Y Fan has recently celebrated its 22nd year on the road with a major European tour. Since starting the tour in September, the band has clocked up over 3500 miles, with dates in Luxembourg, Germany, England and Wales.

The final concerts in this ‘Bridges Not Walls’ tour closes another chapter in the band’s story with the departure of guitarist Geoff Cripps. Geoff is one of the four founder members of the band which formed in 1996 and has since gigged and toured extensively in the UK and Europe, as well as producing six albums, an EP, a recent single and a tune book.

“We’re sad to see Geoff go and wish him well,” says the band on its website, “and there’s no doubt that we’ll remain firm friends! He has brought so much to the band with his distinctive playing style and in his stalwart work in promoting us. However, the band is set to continue and it is 'business as usual' with several bookings for private twmpaths already in the diary for next spring during this transition to a new line-up.”
