Event Summary

Traditional music comes to the concert hall! VRï have risen to prominence in Wales and further afield over the last two years, gaining high acclaim for their exciting sound, stylish arrangements and innovative art-music interpretations of folk melodies and songs. Although their roots are in Wales and the backbone of their repertoire is Welsh, VRï make a point of blending other traditional musics from around Europe, and have been heavily influenced the 'chamber-folk' artists from both sides of the Atlantic. VRï's vision has always been to maintain the integrity and individuality of their fiddle styles within the ideals of classical chamber ensemble, to deliver a product which harnesses both the raw energy of the fiddle and the finesse of the violin.


Patrick Rimes has extensive touring experience across 3 continents with the likes of Calan, Ghazalaw and Cerys Matthews Band. He plays fiddle and viola, and adds some flagrantly appropriated Quebecois foot percussion! He is in demand as composer/arranger, and won a BAFTA in 2017 for work with regular collaborator Bryn Terfel.

As one of the leaders of a new generation of trad cellists in Wales, Jordan Price Williams is in the interesting position of almost entirely inventing a new style - although he is strongly influenced by eminent cellists such as Natalie Haas, his voice is unmistakably his own. He is also a member of Elfen and Nogood Boyo.

Aneirin Jones is part of the new wave of young traditional musicians coming from Wales. Having already been working professionally since the age of 16 with the likes of Nogood Boyo and Pendevig, he is now studying traditional fiddle at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland - but he remains a Welshman through and through!

Triawd newydd yw Vrï sydd wedi dod ynghyd i gynrychioli Cymru a'i cherddoriaeth ar lwyfan y sîn 'gwerin-siambr' sydd yn ymddangos bob ochr i'r Iwerydd ar hyn o'r bryd. Maent yn cyfuno profiad Jordan Price Williams (Elfen) Patrick Rimes (Calan) ac Aneirin Jones, ac mae'r tri yn cyflwyno caneuon ac alawon o'r gwledydd Celtaidd a thu hwnt, tra'n ceisio gweddu egni sesiwn dafarn swnllyd efo ystryw a trefniannau cain pedwarawd llinynnol Fiennaidd
