About

VRÏ A Mwldan Production / Cynhyrchiad y Mwldan Enillwyr Albwm Gorau Gwobrau Gwerin Cymru ddwywaith (albwm debut Tŷ Ein Tadau (2019) ac islais a genir 2022), VRï yw Jordan Price Williams (sielo, llais), Aneirin Jones (feiolin, llais) a Patrick Rimes (feiola, feiolin, llais). Wedi’u hysbrydoli gan stori anhygoel cyfnod pan gafodd cerddoriaeth a dawns draddodiadol Cymru eu darostwng gan gapeli’r Methodistiaid, ac, yn gynharach, ei hiaith gan y Ddeddf Uno, mae VRï yn taflu goleuni newydd ar draddodiad gwerin bywiog sy’n harneisio egni amrwd y ffidil gyda cheinder y feiolin, a phrydferthwch cerddoriaeth siambr gyda llawenydd a phleserau sesiwn mewn tafarn, gyda harmonïau lleisiol pwerus yn sail i’r cyfan. ~ Two-time winners of Best Album at the Welsh Folk Award (debut album Tŷ Ein Tadau (2019) and 2022's islais a genir), VRï are Jordan Price Williams (cello, voice), Aneirin Jones (violin, voice) and Patrick Rimes (viola, violin, voice). Inspired by 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, VRï shed new light on a vibrant folk tradition that harnesses the raw energy of the fiddle with the finesse of the violin, and the beauty of chamber music with the joy and hedonism of a pub session, all underpinned with powerful vocal harmonies. ~ ‘VRï’s distinctive approach is a thing of wonder… positively spine-tingling’ 5*, Dave Haslam, RnR Magazine ‘Like a roller coaster through time, VRï rises high by mining deep’, Alan Tigay, World Listening Post ‘Unique, lovingly connecting with and reviving a lost heritage for a new generation.’ 5*, Anja S Beinroth, Folk London ‘A primal roar of Welshness’ 4*, Nathaniel Handy, SONGLINES ‘This is a landmark in Welsh Music’ Andrew Cronshaw, RootsWorld ‘A truly unique — and utterly gorgeous — sound.’ Rick Anderson, CD Hotlist ‘A breathtakingly beautiful album’ Holly Moors, Moors Magazine (Belgium)
