BRIGYN are brothers Ynyr and Eurig Roberts from Snowdonia, Wales.

Since forming the musical movement in 2004, Brigyn have received plentiful airplay and TV appearances within Wales and the UK.

Their sound is a mixture of modern folk music, crafted rhythm loops and lush, expansive orchestral samples. The brothers admit to being influenced by various music ranging from Bjork's electronica, through Simon & Garfunkel's folky sound, to 20th century classical composers.

This unique blend of musical influences has allowed Brigyn to share a stage with artists ranging from world famous tenor Jose Carreras to The Incredible String Band. To date they have performed at The Green Man Festival, Llangollen International Eisteddfod, Small Nations Festival, Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, and also at popular Welsh language festivals such as Maes B and Gwyl y Faenol (Brynfest).
