Broadcaster, actress and singer, Gwenno Dafydd, has been Passionate About Piaf for nearly forty years. The passion started when she was a singer on the streets of Brussels and Europe, thus bonding her spiritually and metaphorically with the most famous songstress France ever produced.
Gwenno is acknowledged as the 'Welsh Piaf' having performed her songs numerous times on radio, television and in concerts over the years. In 2015, she had a programme commissioned by BBC Radio Cymru to celebrate the centenary of Piaf's birth in which she sang and was featured extensively throughout the show.
Gwenno has created a 'one-woman' tribute show linking some of her most famous songs with stories about her incredible life entitled Passionate about Piaf, and has even performed some of Piaf's songs to great acclaim in the South of France in front of a French audience and delivered her show entirely through the medium of Flemish in Antwerp in Café Kiebooms. She has sung her Piaf songs in Los Angeles and twice in New York, in the internationally famous, New York, off-Broadway musical venue, Don't Tell Mama, accompanied by Nate Buccieri. She has, amongst other venues, performed twice on the Glanfa Stage at the Millenium Centre and three performances in West Wales including a sold-out performance at Ffwrn in Fishguard. Gwenno makes her Crazy Coqs debut this summer.
