Tapestri is a band 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 Folk, Country, Americana and Roots. Their voices instantly found a connection and developed a harmonious sound, likened to that of sibling duos.
Sarah and Lowri have been performing as solo artists for a number of years, performing across Wales, the UK and internationally - (including Folk Alliance in Kansas and North American Festival of Wales, Greenman, Underneath the Stars and Festival Number 6) and played on national and international radio (BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2).
As a newly formed band and based at opposite ends of Wales, (Sarah on Anglesey and Lowri in Pembrokeshire) the pair continued to develop their vision for Tapestri throughout the pandemic, making plans and recording remotely. As soon as they could meet in person, they were back at it and soon had written their album songs.
Lowri and Sarah have a special connection that has grown through the songs they have written and the vision they have for Tapestri and women in music. They were inspired by The Highwomen, the US ‘supergroup’ featuring Brandi Carlile and Amanda Shires, 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 and performances at Focus Wales, Between the Trees, Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, Noson Lawen, Gwyl Fwyd Caernarfon, and represented Wales in the first ever Global Music Match, this summer they were crowd favourites on the main stage at Cambridge Folk Festival and Greenman, released a limited edition hand made CD and played two sold out hometown shows.
They look forward to a number of shows and festivals over the autumn and their debut album will be released in March 2023.
