Four band members with their arms raised in amongst purple sheets of plastic hanging on a wire.

Listening to Hen Ogledd’s eclectic, off-kilter pop feels like embarking on a cosmic voyage; whether singing about the joys of wild swimming or the very real prospect of human extinction the quartet does so with a playful, astute wit and infectious charisma.

Formed by Richard Dawson and Rhodri Davies in 2012, with Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington joining after, the band’s sonic approach is suitably idiosyncratic, citing far-ranging influences from ABBA to 12th century composer Hildegard von Bingen.

Illustrating this scope, their most recent release ‘Free Humans’ “is an ambitious, progress, intelligent and experimental take on pop music” (The Quietus).

Presented by Bristol Beacon 

Standing event

16+ (Under 18s to be accompanied by an adult)

“Shabby guitars, crafty hooks, and sing-songy campfire melodies, all warmly interwoven like a winter cardigan”
