Amazing. These lads just worked so well together. Great harmonies and melodies and the music blended seamlessly. Can't remember when I enjoyed a concert so much. Amazing talent. Bought the Islamis A Genir CD and haven't stopped playing it. I don't speak Welsh which I thought might be a slight drawback, but the emotion put i nto each track.....well the music speaks for itself. 10/10 😊👍

About VRï

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.

"As a restoration of Welsh folk traditions mixed with touches of English, Cornish and Scandinavian (on ‘Taflu Rwdins’) this powerful debut sits alongside Leveret, Duncan Chisholm and even the mighty The Gloaming for shedding new light and life on native song and tune traditions.”
5* TIM CUMMING, SONGLINES on Tŷ Ein Tadau (Our Fathers' House)

"An energetic awakening"
THE ARTS DESK on VRï live at Cambridge Folk Festival 2022

"Full of the fervent energy of these three players, this is ingenious 'chamber trad', something brand new for Wales."
Georgia Ruth, RADIO CYMRU

"VRï are not just three stunning musicians; they summon up a magic chemistry that is absolutely bewildering, mesmerising and thoroughly addictive."
Mick Tems, FOLKWALES
