Robin Huw Bowen (Harp)


Since 1983, Robin Huw Bowen has introduced the Welsh Triple Harp and its music to thousands all over the world. As the only full-time professional Welsh harpist specializing solely in the Welsh Triple Harp, his influence on the world of Welsh folk music and harping has been far-reaching. He undoubtedly ranks among the most important figures that the Welsh folk tradition has produced.

“… Robin has got to be one of the top performers, giving the Welsh Triple Harp the airing it so rightly deserves, and his show on this night was one of the best I’ve ever seen or heard.” (Living Tradition)
