SINGING BRICKIE BUILDING HIS CAREER.



SINGING bricklayer Robin Jones is busy recording songs for his second CD before he goes off on a five week tour of Wales Wales, Welsh Cymru, western peninsula and political division (principality) of Great Britain (1991 pop. 2,798,200), 8,016 sq mi (20,761 sq km), west of England; politically united with England since 1536. The capital is Cardiff. .

Robin, 32, from Bala, but who has just moved into the village of Rhewl near Ruthin, is turning his back on the building sites in a bid to become big in the Welsh music scene.

He writes most of his own songs - his first CD, called simply Robin Jones, is selling like hot cakes - and he is now busy writing and recording songs for a new CD which he plans to release early next year.

His busy musical career is a far cry from the building sites where he has spent his working life but where he was well-known for his singing.

He started singing seriously when he was 21 and, in between the building work, would sing in clubs around Wales and Scotland. He also did a six month tour of Cyprus.

Robin was encouraged by the critical acclaim of Barbara Windsor, Julie McDonald Julie Maree McDonald (born March 14 1970) was an Australian long-distance freestyle swimmer of the 1980s and 1990s, who won a bronze medal in the 800m freestyle, swimming at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.  and others when he appeared on TV's Star for the Night programme.

However, he then turned to the Welsh music scene, and has not looked back since North Wales North Wales (known in some archaic texts as Northgalis) is the northernmost unofficial region of Wales, bordered to the south by Mid Wales and to the east by England.  entertainer Idris Charles of the Cwmni Penffordd recording company at Mold became his manager.

He launched his CD at the National Eisteddfod eisteddfod (īstĕth`vəd, –vôd) [Welsh,=session], Welsh competitive festival. Contests traditionally are held in all the arts and crafts, with special emphasis on music and poetry.  at Denbigh, sang every day on the Cwmni Penffordd stand, and performed at the cabaret evenings during Eisteddfod week for Radio Cymru at Clwyd Theatr Cymru Clwyd Theatr Cymru (IPA: /klʊɨd θɛːatr ˈkɨːmˌrɨ̞/), known until 1998 as Theatr Clwyd , Mold.
