BRA004, 2013 (re-release from 2001)
Re-issue of Robert Evans’ & Mary-Ann Roberts’ first record, the first released recording of crwth music as solo and to accompany voice according to the sleeven notes. A nice selection of historical and traditional Welsh music.

Bragod
Kaingk
Self Published, c.2004
This excellently well-produced double CD features Mary-Ann Roberts's wonderfully ancient singing, accompanied by Bob Evans on crwth and lyre, in adventurous reconstructions of historical Welsh songs and instrumental music from the Gododdin through Robert ap Huw to 19th century traditional material. There is a 2nd CD including video clips as well as a substantial and scholarly booklet. Highly reccommended.

Bragod
Llatai
BRA003, 2013
The latest CD from Bob and Mary-Ann: “Messages of human and divine love.... Marking 400 years since Robert ap Huw copied his manuscript of bardic music, Llatai is a recording of three pieces from Bragod’s performance Birds/Adar”. This disc presents just three big ambitious tracks, including the 26-minute “Arthur’s Talk with the Eagle” which features the singing of both of them. Really lovely with some very subtle and ambient crwth playing.
