Format: Audio CD
... is what Fernhill make.
Every track tells a story, often in sequences of songs and melodies woven together. The words are almost exclusively Welsh, but English translations are provided in the booklet.
Joyful and melancholy in turn, this music is a fine addition to the traditional Celtic repertoire, and a breath of fresh air when compared with the echo-vocals and synthesizers of so many other 'Celtic' artists.

Having heard all five of Fernhill's records (so far, I hope there will be more ...) I have to say that Whilia comes out on top easily. Even without being a speaker of Welsh it is a great listening experience. The songs sound incredibly fresh, the music fits (not a tinny trumpet forlornly in the background as on other Fernhill's), it simply all belongs ... together.
I can highly recommend this album: if you want to have one of Fernhill let it be this one.

Fernhill the best of traditional-moving-towards-modern-folk music. Julie Murphy's haunting & beguilingly beautiful voice - spellbinding! Unique quirky accompaniment by gifted musicians. This album takes you on an astonishingly genre-spanning musical journey - (don't let the 'Welsh' language lyrics put you off ~pretend it's Catalan or Gaelic, if you like!)This is the 6th time I've bought Whilia - having gifted my other 5 copies to friends who found themselves equally beguiled as I !

I met Fernhill when I heard the "Rough Guide to the music of Wales". There they play "Fi Wela". It was immediate passion. Jullie Murphy's voice, and the simple, but eficient instrumentation, let me eager to hear them more and more. When I like the music, mp3 isn't enough for me, then I ordered the CD "Whilia".
The album is wonderful, emotive songs with captivating interpretations, and mostly: sung in Welsh. This album is a "must"!
A small flaw that does not compromise the work: there is no lyrics in Welsh, only the translation into English. Remains a curiosity ...
To listen, listen, listen ...
