Support HMS Morris in getting to SXSW Festival, Texas, March 2024. Cefnogwch HMS Morris i wireddu eu breuddwyd o chwarae yng Ngwyl SXSW '24

by HMS Morris in Cardiff, United Kingdom

HMS Morris have been invited to perform at SXSW Festival 2024, we're so excited! It's a chance to perform our music for the big movers and shakers of the international industry, so a pretty big deal in terms of making the band a sustainable enterprise for years to come.

Performing abroad is an expensive undertaking for an indie band without the support of a grant or a major label pot of cash, so to achieve our dream of flying the flag for Wales in Austin Texas we require some support! 

Of course it's a tough time financially for everyone at the moment so any amount you can spare, even if teeny tiny, would be hugely appreciated.

The funds will go towards visas, flights, gear hire and accommodation.

Thank you xx

Heledd, Sam, Billy and Iestyn.

Mae HMS Morris wedi derbyn gwahoddiad i berfformio yng Ngwyl SXSW yn Austin, Texas yn mis Mawrth 2024! Ry'n ni wrth ein boddau ein bod am gael y cyfle i berfformio i rai o fawrion pwysicaf y diwydiant cerddorol rhyngwladol, y math o bobol all helpu wneud HMS yn fenter gynhaliadwy am flynyddoedd i ddod.

Ond mae perfformio tramor, yn enwedig yn yr Unol Daleithiau, yn fusnes drud heb gefnogaeth grant neu label mawr efo llwyth o arian, felly, i gyflawni ein breuddwyd o gynrychioli Cymru yn Texas ry'n ni angen ychydig o gefnogaeth!

Wrth gwrs, mae hi'n gyfnod anodd yn ariannol i bawb ar hyn o bryd, felly fydd hyd yn oed y ceiniogau lleiaf yn cael eu croesawi a breichiau agored a chalonau diolchgar.

Fe fydd y swm a godwyd yn mynd tuag at gostau visas, teithio, llogi offer a llety.

Diolch yn fawr iawn!

Heledd, Sam, Billy a Iestyn xx
