Formed of sibling trio – Elan, Marged and Gwilym Rhys from Snowdonia, North Wales in the Summer of 2012, Plu (meaning ‘feathers’ in Welsh) play alternative Welsh language folk music with hints of country/ Americana, with close 3 part harmonies being a back-bone to their varied set. As well as their own material Plu play adaptions of traditional songs of Welsh and other origins.
In 2014 Plu were part of Horizons/Gorwelion, a scheme delivered by BBC Cymru Wales in partnership with Arts Council Wales to develop new, independent contemporary music in Wales. As part of this project they played in festivals such as Hay Literary Festival and Festival No.6 as well as recording a live session at BBC studios Maida Vale. The band will be representing Wales at Folk Alliance International, Kansas City in February 2016.
Plu released their debut album ‘Plu’ on the label Sbrigyn Ymborth in July 2013 which was produced by Aled Hughes from Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog. This album was shortlisted for the Welsh Language Ablbum of the Year 2013/14. The trio created an album for children, titled ‘Holl Anifeiliaid Y Goedwig’, on the Sain Cyf label, released in December 2014. This was also shortlisted for Welsh Language Album of the Year 2014/15. Their third album ‘Tir a Golau’ was released in the Sbrigyn Ymborth label in November 2015.
