Discovered in ‘Hanes Llandysul’ (A History of Llandysul 1896) and originally composed by Edward Rees of Talgarreg, this rare song tells the tale of ‘y fab afradlon’ – the prodigal son who leaves his ‘cynefin’ and goes to sea, only to find that life is tough and soon finds he has ‘hiraeth’ or longing for the comforts of home.
