Is dweud used for both "give information" (I told my father about the exhibition) and "recount, narrate" (I told him a story)?

I would have expected a different verb for the latter.

adrodd, perhaps, or traethu?

Hm, Gweiadur has for dweud sense 6 "adrodd: dweud stori". Colour me surprised.

Dweud is fine for all of them. You can use adrodd for recounting too.
