Merêd’s swansong on S4C
A Welshman from Tanygrisiau who has met Marilyn Monroe, who used to pass Albert Einstein in the corridors of Princeton University, America every day, and whose collection of songs made it on to the New York Times top 12 popular light music albums of the year. And that’s barely scraping the surface of the colourful life of Dr Meredydd Evans.
In the year he turned 95, the man himself was featured in a special documentary as he looked back on his life so far, from his early upbringing, to moving with his wife and young daughter to America, and his attempts to protect the Welsh language and culture upon his return to his homeland.
