Uiscedwr (pronounced "ish-ka-dooer") is a trio which plays British folk music influenced by world music. The group was originally based in Manchester and went on to win the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2002.

Their first album gained them a nomination for the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2005. By this time, Uiscedwr was mixing British folk music with a strong Celtic bias with other influences including jazz, European folk and world musics.

Anna Esslemont, from Wales, plays fiddle and sings. Co-founder Cormac Byrne, from County Waterford, Ireland, plays bodhrán, percussion and drums. As well as touring and recording with Uiscedwr, Byrne has toured extensively with Seth Lakeman's band and gained a BBC Fame Academy Bursary, which was used to partially fund Uiscedwr's second album, Circle.

Anna and Cormac perform as a trio with a supporting guitarist. From January 2010, guitar is played by either Nick Waldock or James Hickman (and Nick also plays bass guitar). Nick first worked with Uiscedwr during its 'big band' project in 2008; James joined Uiscedwr at the end of 2007 to replace Kevin Dempsey.

The band's third album, Fish Cat Door, was released in May 2009. The title of the 11-track CD is a tongue-in-cheek aide memoir on the pronunciation of the band's name.
