In the passing of Katie Wyn at the age of 84 the eisteddfod scene lost one of its most faithful supporters. She possessed a fine soprano voice, gaining much success as a soloist over many years, first as a child, and then competing throughout her life in eisteddfodau right across north and mid Wales. .

Katie’s memorial CD is a sell-out
Dec 31 2007 by Our Correspondent, Daily Post
WHEN the family of a popular eisteddfod soloist decided to release a CD in her memory little did they realise that demand would exceed all expectations. Within a matter of days of the Oes o Gan (Lifetime of Song) CD being launched in early December, all 250 copies had been sold. Now, sales of the CD in memory of soprano Katie Wyn Jones, of Dinas Dinlle, near Caernarfon, are fast approaching 1,000. Proceeds from the sales go to T Gobaith hospice and St Twrog’s Church, Llandwrog.
