Monthly Folk night in Dulwich 

At the Castle Pub, Crystal Palace Road


On 5 May at 7.30


Amazingly this phenomenal group, the best Welsh group I have ever heard, is coming to Dulwich!  Aneirin, Jordan and Patrick play cello and fiddle. Half the time they play music sublimely; in the other half they sing in Welsh as well.  

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

When I saw VRI for the first time last year it was one of those rare gigs that change your understanding of what folk music is and can be, up there with the first time I heard the Watersons, and the Chieftains, so I feel  very privileged to be able to bring VRI to a South London audience.

VRI are Jordan Price Williams (cello, vocals), Aneurin Jones (violin, vocals) and Patrick Rimes (viola, violin and vocals). They draw their creative inspiration from the incredible story of the oppression of Wales’ traditional music by the Methodist chapels of the 18th and 19th centuries and the suppression of the Welsh language. 

VRï’s music takes hold of the remaining strands of tradition and the music subsumed by the chapels, adds to them  by discovering long lost tunes and songs and blending them into a joyous celebration of Welsh identity, sung in the Welsh language, combining the energy of a rowdy pub session with the style and finesse of the Viennese string quartet.

All three members of the band are crossover musicians . One one hand they are all members of 20 strong Pentevig known for their mash-ups of Welsh folk and rock, funk, rap and electro on the other they have represented Wales at the Last Night of the Proms !

Check VRi out at

Entrance tonight is £15. 



Debbie is half of Burd Ellen but tonight armed only with a shruti box she is expecting to sing mainly traditional songs in Scots Gaelic and English. She will be supported by the Dulwich Scottish music group usually seen on our "after Burns" night.
