to Dafis sings songs with warmth, sincerity and dry humour. He accompanies himself in distinctive style on the melodeon. He is also a storyteller, and his storytelling skills and attitude show in the way he puts a song across. His material grows from his musical background and personal landscape – a mix of traditional songs in Welsh, and songs in English by Welsh songwriters.

The early 2000s saw him tour Britain, Ireland, Brittany and Estonia with melodeon / violin duo Toreth. Recent performances, whether solo, or accompanied by guitarist Danny KilBride, have been smaller-scale and closer to home, a treasure shared.
