CHAMBERFOLK TRIO FROM WALES

‘A primal roar of Welshness’

4*, NATHANIEL HARDY, SONGLINES

‘This is a landmark in Welsh Music’

ANDREW CRONSHAW, ROOTSWORLD

‘ unique, lovingly connecting with and reviving a

lost heritage for a new generation.’

5* ANJA S BEINROTH, FOLK LONDON

VRï are three young men from deepest, darkest chapel-going Wales who have mined the cultural upheaval of past centuries and drawn inspiration from the incredible story of a time when Wales’ traditional music and dance was suppressed by Methodist chapels, and, earlier, its language by the Act of Union.

As audio archaeologists, VRï have unearthed long-lost nuggets that shed a new light on a vibrant folk tradition that harnesses the raw energy of the fiddle with the finesse of the violin, the beauty of chamber music with the joy and hedonism of a pub session. Their songs, sung with powerful vocal harmonies, tell stories of the people who struggled 200 years ago, just as many struggle today. It’s a wonderful and unique soundscape that connects across the centuries to give us a sense of belonging, of community, and a magical feeling of weightlessness and uplifting freedom.

VRï’s 2019 debut album ‘Ty Ein Tadau’ (House Of Our Fathers) received a 5* review in Songlines magazine and numerous awards nominations and wins. Their new album ‘islais a genir’ (a sung whisper) releases on the bendigedig label in October 2022.

VRï are Jordan Price Williams (cello, voice), Aneirin Jones (violin, voice) and Patrick Rimes (viola, violin, voice).
