Pedair

Pedair, feminine form of ‘pedwar’ (‘four’ in Welsh) draws on the talents of four of Wales’ most prominent and award-winning folk artists: Gwenan Gibbard, Gwyneth Glyn, Meinir Gwilym and Siân James. Groundbreaking international artists in their own right, all four thrive on collaboration and the thrill of live performance. Together they bring to life traditional material with new arrangements on harps, guitars, piano and percussion.

Their live performances have captured the imaginations and hearts of audiences with their sweeping harmonies, fresh interpretations of the Welsh folk tradition, and intimacy of songwriting.

Bringing together their unique gifts as song-tellers, they source material and inspiration from the poetic, oral and folk traditions of Wales and beyond. This is coupled with their deftness as songwriters, responding to the current state of the world and the resilience of nature, with a particular interest in giving voice to the woman.

Their first recordings, having emerged during lockdown, gained instant popularity, unexpectedly becoming a source of comfort and hope to many (including Pedair themselves!) With their much-anticipated debut album, ‘Mae ’na Olau’, released by Sain in 2022, receiving the ‘Albym Cymraeg y Flwyddyn’ (Welsh Album of the Year Award at the National Eisteddfod in 2023, Pedair’s creative synergy is only beginning to reach its full potential.

 

Mae Pedair yn dwyn ynghŷd dalentau pedair o artistiaid gwerin arobryn amlycaf Cymru: Gwenan Gibbard, Gwyneth Glyn, Meinir Gwilym a Siân James. A’r pedair yn artistiaid rhyngwladol blaengar eu hunain, maent yn ffynnu wrth gydweithio a pherfformio’n fyw. Gyda’i gilydd dônt â bywyd newydd i ddeunydd traddodiadol gyda threfniannau newydd ar delynau, gitârs a phiano.

Mae eu perfformiadau byw wedi cydio yn nychymyg a chalonnau cynulleidfaoedd, gyda’u harmonîau ysgubol, ymdriniaeth grefftus o’r traddodiad, ac agosatrwydd y caneuon maent yn eu cyfansoddi.

Gan gyfuno eu doniau unigryw fel chwedl-ganwyr, maent yn tynnu eu deunydd o’r traddodiad barddol a llafar, yn ogystal â gwerin. Mae hynny’n cyfuno’n naturiol gyda’u crefft fel cantorion-gyfansoddwyr medrus, a’u caneuon gwreiddiol yn ymateb i gyflwr presennol y byd, gwytnwch byd natur, a chyda phwyslais arbennig ar roi llais i’r ferch.

Gwelodd eu recordiadau cyntaf olau dydd yn ystod y cyfnod clo, a buan y daeth eu caneuon yn hynod boblogaidd, ac yn ffynhonnell cysur a gobaith annisgwyl i nifer o bobol (yn cynnwys Pedair eu hunain!) Rhyddhawyd eu halbym cyntaf, ‘Mae’ na olau’, ar label Sain yn 2022, ac ers hynny mae asiad creadigol Pedair yn mynd o nerth i nerth. Yn Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Llyn ac Eifionydd eleni, enillodd yr albym wobr ‘Albym Cymraeg y Flwyddyn’.

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
