A CARMARTHENSHIRE band has won the 2023 Welsh Music Prize.

Rogue Jones – a Carmarthenshire-based duo consisting of married couple Bethan Mai and Ynyr Morgan – from Cwm Gwendraeth were given the award for their second album Dos Bebés which was released earlier this year.

The album covers themes including parenthood, computer science and Welsh independence.

The pair were given the award at the Wales Millennium Centre at a ceremony hosted by BBC Radio 1 presenter Sian Eleri.

In a statement on Facebook, the bilingual duo said: "Welsh Music Prize 2023! Diolch. O. Galon!

"Wrth ein bodd bod ni wedi ennill Gwobr Gerddoriaeth Gymreig 2023! Diolch am eich holl gefnogaeth a chariad /

"We are over the moon to have won this award. Thanks for all your support and love. And congratulations all the amazing nominees."

Jonathan Edwards, MP for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, tabled a parliamentary motion to congratulate the band on their success.

He said: “It was an honour to table this motion to celebrate the talent we have here in Carmarthenshire.

“The Welsh Music Prize is a notorious prize in the music industry with many well-known artists winning the award previously.

“The fact that the duo have a young family and are still successful with their music will inspire many I am sure. I would like to wish Rogue Jones all the best for the future, and I look forward to hearing new music from them.”
