Folk Alliance International 2015


Yr wythnos nesaf bydd cerddoriaeth Gymreig yn teithio i'r Unol Daleithiau i arddangos yng nghynhadledd Folk Alliance International yn Kansas City.

Mae gan Kizzy Crawford, Lowri Evans, Chris Jones a Gwyneth Glyn arddangosfeydd swyddogol yn y digwyddiad enfawr hwn, y ffair fasnach fwyaf ar gyfer cerddoriaeth draddodiadol a gwerin, yng Ngwesty'r Westin, Kansas City. Bydd yr Horizons Suite yn gartref i arddangosfeydd ychwanegol a fydd yn hybu actiau o'r Deyrnas Gyfunol a gwahoddedigion.

Bydd y gynhadledd yn cynnwys dwy fil o arddangosfeydd a gynhelir dros bedwar diwrnod, ac mae’r artistiaid o Gymru a staff trac a fydd yno i’w cefnogi yn rhan o’r ddirprwyaeth Brydeinig - sy’n mynd o dan y faner ‘Gorwelion – Byd o Gerddoriaeth o’r Deyrnas Gyfunol ac Iwerddon'.

Dwedodd Cyfarwyddydd trac Danny KilBride; "mae trac wedi bod yn gweithio ar hyn ers nifer o flynyddoedd – yn mynychu’r gynhadledd, yn adeiladu perthynas gyda chysylltiadau tramor ac yn paratoi’r ffordd i actau o Gymru. ‘Rydym yn edrych ymlaen at rannu peth o’r talent sydd gan Gymru i’w gynnig".

Mae'n ddyledus i haelioni Cronfa Datblygu Diwydiant Cerdd Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru a Chelfyddydau Rhyngwladol Cymru. Ein partneriaid yn y ddirprwyaeth yw British Underground, sy’n helpu i hyrwyddo cerddoriaeth y Deyrnas Gyfunol dramor, a’r English Folk Dance and Song Society a Generator Ngogledd Iwerddon sydd hefyd yn mynd â nifer o actau.

Ein perfformwyr eleni:

Wedi'i henwebu fel Artist y Flwyddyn -Cymru, ac wedi perfformio yng nghwmni artistiaid fel Cara Dillon a Martin Simpson, mae ei chaneuon yn dwyn eu lliwiau cerddorol o ystod o ddylanwadau sy'n cynnwys canu gwerin, canu gwlad a'r felan.  www.lowrievansofficial.co.uk

Mae Chris yn disgrifio'i hun fel 'baledwr gwerin Cymreig sy'n canu caneuon yn Gymraeg ac yn Saesneg, caneuon sy'n deillio o draddodiadau'r Deyrnas Gyfunol a thu hwnt'. Meddai Adam Walton, cyflwynydd BBC Radio Wales “Pan recordiodd Chris sesiwn, gwnaeth harddwch dirodres a hiraethus ei ganeuon – y gwirionedd yn ei lais bariton cyfoethog – ddod â dagrau i lygaid y staff cynhyrchu a’r peirianwyr croengaled.”
