Watch: Singer’s beautiful Welsh language version of Fleetwood Mac classic
The Welsh singer who taught Good Morning Britain presenters how to sing Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau is back with her new video – a classic song about a Welsh witch.
Bronwen Lewis, a former contestant on The Voice, has made something of a name for herself with her videos which promote the Welsh language on social media platforms such as TikTok and Twitter.
And now she’s back with her new offering especially for Halloween – a gorgeous version of the Fleetwood Mac hit ‘Rhiannon’.
The song is inspired by Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks’ love of the Mabinogion version of the Rhiannon story.
The video, which shows Bronwen playing the keyboard, has attracted much praise from social media.

Bronwen hit the headlines in June when she gave Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard a harmonious rendition of the Welsh national anthem ahead of Wales’ round 16 Euro 2020 clash with Denmark.
The songwriter, who performed Bread and Roses in the BAFTA winning feature film, Pride, was also joined by former Welsh international footballer John Hartson.
The performance included subtitles in Welsh and English and the presenters even joined in to sing part of the anthem.
After the performance Bronwen said on Twitter: “What a MOMENT. WAW. Still in shock. Thank you @GMB for having me on and promoting our language and nation in such a wonderful way.”
