Cardiff’s Guto Dafis captivates audiences his warmth, his humanity and his wry humour.
He also sings and plays a button accordion and brings a musician’s sense of pace and dynamics to his delivery of a tale, often punctuating the narrative with a tune or a song.
He tells in English and Welsh (and sometimes a bit of both!)
