First performed as part of Pontio’s opening season in 2016 to a sell-out crowd, Llechi is a brand new visual, musical and aerial collaboration, inspired by the theme of slate and the story of Bethesda, which has a worldwide resonance. It also acknowledges the quarrymen who, determined to building a better future for their children, contributed from their low incomes towards the founding of Bangor University - a University of which Pontio is a part.
9Bach are an alternative folk group that tour widely in the UK and internationally, and were recently nominated in the ‘Best Group’ category at the Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017, having scooped ‘Best Album for Tincian in 2015. Joining 9Bach on stage will be Lleuwen Steffan, Siân James, Caleb Rhys, Côr y Penrhyn, Vertical Dance Kate Lawrence, John Ogwen and poet Martin Daws.
