Tapestri was sparked by a chance meeting between Welsh singer-songwriters Lowri Evans and Sarah Zyborska (SERA) at Festival Interceltique de Lorient in the summer of 2019 where they were both performing as solo artists at the Welsh Pavilion.
Fuelled by their passion for folk and Americana music and the desire to form a bilingual female-fronted band, they soon after started carving out songs that take their musical colours from a broad palette that includes Americana, Roots, Folk and Country. Their voices instantly found a connection and developed a harmonious sound, likened to that of sibling duos.
They were inspired by The Highwomen, the US ‘supergroup’ who formed as a response to the lack of representation of women artists on country music radio and festivals.
After releasing a number of bilingual singles (supported and playlisted by BBC Radio Wales, Radio Cymru and picked up by shows such as Mark Radcliffe’s Radio 2 Folk Show) and performances at festivals including the main stage at Cambridge Folk Festival and Greenman, Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, Between the Trees as well as representing Wales in the first ever Global Music Match, they are working on their debut album set for release in February 2023.
