The Gentle Good

‘Galargan’ – The Official Album Launch

The Gentle Good is the moniker of Cardiff-based musician and songwriter Gareth Bonello. Known for his enchanting melodies, intricate guitar style and beautiful acoustic arrangements, Gareth is one of the foremost songwriters working in Wales today.

The Gentle Good has released several highly acclaimed records, notably Ruins/Adfeilion, which won the Welsh Music prize in 2017 and Y Bardd Anfarwol (The Immortal Bard) which won the Welsh Language Album of the Year award in 2014.

This event will see the release of Galargan (Welsh for ‘Lament’), The Gentle Good’s first solo album for almost seven years. Performed on acoustic guitar, cello and vocal, Galargan is a stripped-back exploration of traditional Welsh melody and poetry that took form during the long isolation of the pandemic.

A captivating soloist, Gareth has performed all over the world, from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC to the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing. In recent years Gareth has become a highly regarded musical collaborator, having worked extensively with artists from China and India. Along with artists from the indigenous Khasi community of Northeast India, he is a founder member of the Khasi-Cymru Collective. Their debut album Sai-thaiñ ki Sur (the weaving of voices) was released in May 2021 to widespread critical acclaim and was listed in the top three folk albums of 2021 by The Guardian.
