Plu - Holl Anifeiliaid y Goedwig
‘Holl Anifeiliaid y Goedwig’ is the second album from Plu, the alternative folk trio from Snowdonia, North Wales. It contains 15 songs with a mixture of original, traditional songs and new versions of Welsh children’s classics from Wales all on the theme of animals.
The two sisters and brother, Elan, Marged and Gwilym Rhys, sing in three part harmony with influences of country songs and Americana obvious in their songs. Since forming in 2012 and releasing their first album ‘Plu’ in July 2013 the young band have enjoyed considerable attention. Over the last year they have performed in the international festival Womex and in several Welsh festivals – Gwyl Gwydir, Festival No 6, Gwyl Dinefwr – opportunities that became available from being chosen as one of the bands on the Horizons BBC Wales project.
As well as old favourites such as ‘Triawd y buarth’ and ‘Mam wnaeth gôt i mi’ the album contains new melodies – ‘Ar Garlam’ and ‘Wyt ti’n un o’n teulu ni?’ based on a poem by Myrdding ap Dafydd.
