Theatr Bryn Terfel
Saturday, 10 December, 8pm
Pontio are delighted to bring Meilyr Jones to perform at Theatr Bryn Terfel for the first time.
With his debut album of literate, folky baroque pop 2013 – confusingly released this year – under his belt, the former Race Horses man comes to Bangor following a run of summer UK festivals and as part of a second headline tour.
2013 is a staggeringly rich array of influences and musical textures. There are flushes of baroque, of recorder and harpsichord, there is a recording of a Japanese accordion player he met in Rome, snatches of karaoke on a mobile phone, lush walls of sound followed by a wisp of David Bowie’s Rebel Rebel or an organ recording made in a church in Bristol.
“I wanted to make something that felt right to me and expressed my interests, which are classical music and rock ‘n’ roll music, and films, and nature and karaoke, and tacky stuff,” Jones says. “And I wanted to capture that feeling in Rome of high culture and low-brow stuff all mixed together.”
Meilyr's special guest on the evening will be Casi. Hailing from north Wales and now based in Hackney, Casi’s hypnotic voice and pop sensibilities assure her place as one of Wales’ most exciting artists of the moment.
