Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog are a three piece band consisting of brothers from Rhos Botwnnog, between the villages of Botwnnog and Llaniestyn in the Llyn Peninsula, North Wales. They experiment with country, folk and rock music. The three brothers, Iwan Hughes, Aled Hughes and Dafydd Hughes formed the band in 2006 and got a fair amount of attention from the Welsh language music scene through an early appearance on S4C''s music programme ''Bandit''. BBC Radio Cymru''s C2 programme also regularly aired demoÔs that the band had recorded. By the time they had released their debut album; ÔDawns Y TrychfilodÔ on the Sbrigyn Ymborth label in 2007, they had already developed a good following and were regularly appearing on stage with some of WalesÔs most well known acts. The album was produced by Dyl Mei and recorded at the producer''s ''Blaen y Cae'' studio, which is now closed. The band launched it with a headlining tour throughout Wales. The album reached the number 1 slot for numerous weeks on the C2 chart.
