(1752–1824), antiquarian and harpist to the Prince of Wales, and the most important collector of traditional Welsh music [26]. Born into a well-to-do farming family in rural Wales with a strong musical tradition, he was a notable performer on the harp. The patronage of local gentry eased his path when he left for London for a career as professional harpist, teacher of the gentry, and music publisher.
