Croeso i NEWPORT ROCK COLLECTING

Mae Newport Rock Collecting yn brosiect casglu cyfoes a phrosiect hanes cymdeithasol a gafodd ei greu gan Winding Snake Productions, gyda chefnogaeth Amgueddfa ac Oriel Gelf Casnewydd. Mae’n cael ei ariannu gan Gronfa Dreftadaeth y Loteri Genedlaethol a’r Campws Cyntaf ym Mhrifysgol y De.

Trwy 2018 a 2020, byddwn ni’n casglu straeon a gwrthrychau o gigs Casnewydd yn y cyfnod 1970-2010 ar gyfer archif awdio ac arddangosfa newydd a fydd yn dathlu bandiau, gigs a roc yng Nghasnewydd.

Dyma'r disgrifiad Cymraeg

I RECALL GOING TO SEE THE DARLING BUDS PLAY AT A VENUE ON JOHN FROST SQUARE THAT HAD A BASEMENT ROOM (I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME OF THE VENUE), MUST HAVE BEEN IN THE 80S.

WE WENT TO SEE ELTON JOHN AT THE NEWPORT CENTRE ON 21ST NOVEMBER 1985. MY LATE MOTHER-IN-LAW QUEUED FOR THE TICKETS. I REMEMBER THE DATE BECAUSE IT WAS THE DAY THAT OUR NEPHEW WAS BORN; HIS PARENTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN AT THE CONCERT, BUT WERE AT THE ROYAL WENT HOSPITAL MATERNITY UNIT INSTEAD!

OTHER BANDS I REMEMBER SEEING AT THE NEWPORT CENTRE WERE DEACON BLUE (STANDING NEAR THE FRONT;
WE STILL GO TO SEE THEM WHEN THEY ARE ON TOUR), THE SPECIALS AND PAUL HEATON AND JACQUI ABBOTT.

CAERLEON ARTS FESTIVAL HAS BEEN COING FOR YEARS NOW, AND THEIR FREE MUSIC WEEKEND IS ALWAYS A GOOD DAY OUT.
