A celebration of the harp in Wales, an instrument as symbolically key to a Welsh identity as the flag itself. Foreword by Catrin Finch.

Bruce Cardwell provides a history of the harp in Wales, including how it grew to prominence, its evolving role in Welsh culture, how it became a central symbol of Welshness, how it has developed as a musical instrument in response to changing musical taste, and the booming harp business today. He also explores the craft of harp-making, including the variety of construction, materials, designs and aesthetics, issues of ?playability? and tone, and the fusion of craft skills with art sensibilities. The book also has a section on Forty two contemporary Welsh harpists and harp makers , with portraits and a narrative on their perspective on their personal instruments, their individual repertoires and how they see their place in the continuing tradition.
