Welsh Traditional Music

Front Cover
University of Wales Press, Jun 15, 2016 - Folk music - 289 pages

Even as music of the British Isles has been celebrated and studied worldwide, Welsh traditional music has been almost entirely neglected, both by the public and by scholars. With this volume, Phyllis Kinney fills that gap. Covering Welsh traditional music from its origins through the present, and featuring an extensive selection of musical examples, the book places the whole of Welsh music in its cultural and historical context and will be the definitive book on the topic in English.
