‘A primal roar of Welshness’

‘ unique, lovingly connecting with and reviving a

‘blends the energy of folk fiddling with the decorousness of classical technique without sacrificing the best of either tradition — and harmonizes vocally like angels’

‘islais a genir is an album that honours variety and positively revels in its own complex, colourful identity, by turns thoughtful and celebratory. A formidable artistic and cultural statement.’
‘a breathtakingly beautiful album’
HOLLY MOORS, MOORS MAGAZINE (BELGIUM)
'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.'

on Tŷ Ein Tadau (Our Fathers' House)
‘Islais a genir is a refined, sometimes even delicate album that could
very well become the folk CD of 2022!’
MATTIE POELS, MUSIC FRAMES, (AMSTERDAM)
