Bwthyn Sonig is Tŷ Cerdd’s partnership approach to working with and enabling learning-disabled music-creators – run in partnership with Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias (Caernarfon), Touch Trust (Cardiff), lead artists Teifi Emerald and Elin Taylor, and Glasgow-based partner Sonic Bothy. It began as an ACW-funded Connect & Flourish project, in which music-creator Jo Thomas also partnered.
