Thread Name: Recorded Welsh Music/Crywth Players
Subject: RE: Recorded Welsh Music/Crywth Players
A crwth is best described as a bowed lyre. And, yes, Bragod and Cass Meurig are the two names to look for. Crasdant doesn't use the crwth. It may be that Cass plays crwth on some of the albums of groups of which she is a member, like Pigyn Clust and Fernhill. It may be that Carreg Lafar will be using it in the future as I think one of the members has just bought one. There is more info on the crwth at

I almost didn't post this info as I think it stinks to try to get a pirate version. If you want to do a swap, do an honest swap with the artist. I too am a Canadian and I work with these artists on a daily basis. They don't deserve to be ripped off.
