Bragod is a duo giving historically informed performances of mediaeval Welsh music.[1] The members are Robert Evans and Mary-Anne Roberts.[1] Their music ranges over a very wide timescale, from verses from the Gododdin to 19th century songs.[2]

Robert Evans plays the crwth and the six-stringed lyre, while Mary-Anne Roberts sings with a distinctive rather buzzing style. They use Pythagorean tuning. Their interpretation of the older music is based on Evans's research on the Robert ap Huw Manuscript in the British Library.[1]

The pair released a self-published album, Kaingk, on 30 November 2005.[3] Various tracks from the album have received airplay by BBC Radio 3 during their Late Junction programme.[4][5][6][7][8]
