9781783168576: Welsh Traditional Music

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.

About the Author:

Phyllis Kinney is a former opera singer and an acknowledged authority on Welsh traditional music.

Review:

“The traditional music of Wales is rich and multifaceted. This book, which has been written in a spirit of appreciation and respect, is a well deserved acknowledgement of the unique and influential role of that music in the shaping of the Welsh nation.”—Wyn Thomas, Bangor University

(Wyn Thomas)

“Kinney has produced an excellent survey of Welsh traditional music, from the earliest bardic traditions to the present. . . . A critical resource for anyone interested in Welsh culture or traditional music in general. Highly recommended.” (R. P. Nash Choice)
