The harp is the national instrument of Wales and it is
intertwined in the history of this beautiful country.
Most of the very old traditional Welsh folk tunes were originally written for
the harp. The traditional instrument
is the smaller harp, known as the 'Celtic Harp', 'Lap Harp' or 'Lever Harp'
amongst other names.
The harps link to the Welsh, means that Wales produces more professional
harpists, per head of population than
any other country in the world.
