Band spokesperson Chris Davies told 4BR: "It's been a busy time of late for the band with these important appearances in London, Innsbruck and now Cardiff.
We're grateful for the extra help we've had from some friends for this performance — especially Paul Hughes who has flown in from Norway to take on his traditional role as one of the Eisteddfod ceremonial trumpeters alongside our own Dewi Griffiths."
