In 2017 Ragsy, being a passionate Welshman embarked on a journey to learn his native tongue. Through the help of good friends Andrew Tommo, Thomas & Terwyn Davies (BBC Radio Cymru), Ragsy released his first Welsh single ‘Fy Hafan i‘. This journey has led to Ragsy appearing on BBC’s The Victoria Derbyshire Show and releasing two other Welsh language singles ‘Fy Nghariad (Galw dy Fyddin) and ‘Codi i Gael Aer‘.
2018 has been exciting year so far for Ragsy with his performance as one of the eight finalists on ‘Can i Gymru / Song for Wales’ singing ‘Ti’n Frawd i Mi‘, written by Owain Glenister, which was aired on S4C St David’s Day.
