Enw llwyfan y cantor a’r cyfansoddwr o Gaerdydd, Gareth Bonello ydy ‘The Gentle Good’. Fel un o gerddorion fwyaf blaengar y sin Gymraeg, mae Gareth yn adnabyddus am ei alawon swynol a’i arddull medrus ar y gitâr.

Mae Gareth yn medru sawl offeryn ac yn arbenigo mewn cerddoriaeth acwstig, gan greu caneuon werin dragwyddol yn yr iaith Gymraeg a’r Saesneg. Fel artist profiadol sydd wedi perfformio i gynulleidfaoedd ar draws y byd, gall Gareth fesmereiddio gyda dim ond gitâr, neu hudo gyda’r band llawn a phedwarawd llinynnol. 

 

Mae Gareth wedi derbyn gwobrau hynod am ei recordiadau; enillodd Y Gwobr Gerddoriaeth Gymreig ym 2017 am ei albwm Ruins/Adfeilion ac Albwm Cymraeg y Flwyddyn ym 2014 am Y Bardd Anfarwol. Mae’r albwm diweddaraf yn barod i ryddhau yn 2020 ac yn arddangos cydweithrediad cerddorol gydag artistiaid Khasi o Meghalaya yng Ngogledd Ddwyrain India.
 

The Gentle Good is the moniker of critically acclaimed songwriter and musician Gareth Bonello. Known for his enchanting melodies and intricate guitar style, Gareth is one of the foremost artists working in Wales today.


A multi-instrumentalist that specialises in acoustic music, Gareth creates timeless songs in both the English and Welsh languages. He has performed all over the world and is a captivating live act, equally capable of mesmerizing audiences with just a guitar or with a full band and string quartet.


The Gentle Good have released several award-winning albums, most 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. The latest album is a collaboration with Khasi artists from Meghalaya in North-East India and is due for release later in 2020.
