Lowri Evans is a modern folk artist operating in both English and Welsh.

Since graduating from college in Newcastle with a degree in Jazz, Popular and Commercial Music, Pembrokeshire's Lowri Evans has been releasing records and gigging relentlessly on the folk and traditional circuit.

She started working on ther own music seriously in 2003, encouraged by her musical partner and guitarist Lee Mason to write both in English and Welsh, as her first language.

In the summer of 2006 her first album, Clyw Sibrydion, was released on Fflach's Rasp imprint. BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales's Frank Hennessey picked up on her tunes.

The second album, recorded in English, was Kick The Sand and appeared on the Fflach Tradd label in 2007. It gathered airplay from around the world, including America, Canada, Australia, Belgium and Iceland.

In 2008 the Welsh-language EP Dim Da Maria appeared, followed by Disgleirio in 2009. Her latest album, One Way Ticket, was released in September 2009.

Radio support in Wales has continued and her public profile in the folk and tradtional scene has been maintained courtesy of live appearances at many of the UK's main folk festivals suchas a Wychwood, Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, Small Nation and Broadstairs Folk Festival.
