The Dark Fairy Tale of Rhys and Llewellyn

Have you ever heard sweet music drifting on the breeze as you walk home through the woods at night? And what would happen if you followed that music, and were lured into an endless dance with the Welsh fairy folk - y Tylwyth Teg?

All is revealed as Mark Rees (author of Ghosts of Wales) investigates the dark fairy tale of Rhys and Llewellyn, an old Welsh story from the days when not everyone lived happily ever after.

What is the Ghosts & Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast?

In early 2020, Mark Rees launched the world’s first podcast dedicated to Welsh ghost stories, folklore, myths and legends.

By combining his unique research and insights from many books and articles with long-lost tales from dusty old tomes, this weird and wonderful podcast takes a fascinating look at countless curious subjects.

New episodes are uploaded every Thursday, and feature everything from real-life encounters with pesky poltergeists to fantastical beasts from the Mabinogion and the skulled-headed Christmas favourite herself, the Mari Lwyd.
