Moch Pryderi (Welsh for “Pryderi’s Pigs”) is a three piece Welsh-American band with Breton, Irish and Scottish flair, from Fredericksburg Virginia. Together for 16 years, the band performs as a trio, quartet, or quintet. The band formed as a result of the Fredericksburg Welsh festival in 1998 and has been together since. Their music is firmly rooted in the traditional Brythonic-Celtic music of Wales and Brittany, interwoven with traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, Turkey, and the American-Appalachians. Moch Pryderi has performed widely on the east coast, including the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., The Celtic Classic in Bethlehem Pa., the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Washington Folk Festival, the Fredericksburg Welsh Festival, the Philadelphia Welsh Festival, the Historic Rugby Tennessee Festival of British & Appalachian Culture, the Celtic Nations Heritage Festival in Lake Charles Louisiana, the Welsh Heritage Center in Wymore Nebraska, and the North American Festival of Wales in Cleveland Ohio.

Moch Pryderi’s instrumentation includes the rare Welsh triple harp, Welsh Pibgyrn, Welsh bagpipes, Breton bombarde, bouzouki, flutes, whistles and percussion.
Moch Pryderi’s
 
four CD s, "Dancing in the Pigsty", "Belly Jerk", "Jig Moch" and “Moch IV” contain a rich selection of Welsh traditional materials as well as original works. Their 4th CD, “Moch IV”, was nominated  for the prestigious “WAMMIE” award in the traditional folk music category by the Washington Area Music Association.

Moch Pryderi’s members are; Mary Triola, Rik Rice, and Bill Reese,
with Paul Burgess on bagpipes.
