  • Atsain Priddin: New Music from Wales
  • Bonello, Ruth & Hay
  • Accü
  • Toby Hay (solo)

Daylight Music presents an afternoon dedicated to new Welsh music with some of the foremost artists working in Wales today. It features Toby Hay, Georgia Ruth, Gareth Bonello (The Gentle Good) in a new trio project and Accü (Angharad Van Rijswijk, featuring Richard James). Atsain Priddin is a rare opportunity to hear new music inspired by the landscape and culture of Wales. Expect an afternoon of carefully crafted pieces that blur the boundaries between contemporary Wales and the otherworldly delights of Annwn.

Fingerstyle guitarist Toby Hay writes beautifully evocative instrumentals that instantly transport the listener to the mountains and rivers of mid Wales. Twice nominated for the Welsh Music Prize, Toby has toured the UK and Ireland extensively over the last few years and has built a reputation as a captivating live performer.

Half-Dutch, half-Welsh singer-songwriter Accü has been involved in production since her teens and she has also collaborated with writer and comedian Stewart Lee, Cornershop, and Richard James, as well as producing a collage radio series for the BBC. In her music, she brings together a love of production and a turbulent approach to song-writing – which earned her debut album Echo the Red the title of ‘Welsh Album of The Year’ by Wales Arts Review. She will be joined at Union Chapel by long-time collaborator and exceptional Welsh songwriter Richard James.

Georgia Ruth is a songwriter and musician from Aberystwyth in West Wales. A skilful harpist with a voice of silver, Georgia collaborated with the Manic Street Preachers on their Futurology album and was awarded the Welsh Music Prize for her debut album Week of Pines in 2013.

Based in Cardiff, Gareth Bonello is and has performed for over a decade under the stage name The Gentle Good. Known for his intricate guitar playing and captivating acoustic arrangements, Gareth was awarded the Welsh Music Prize in 2017 for his fourth album Ruins/Adfeilion.
