Gregynog Festival 2022 - Welsh musicians in Georgian Bath

Dr Rhian Davies, 'By particular Desire': Welsh musicians in Georgian Bath

Gregynog Festival's Artistic Director reconstructs the eighteenth-century world when Welsh exports to Bath included performers, composers and impresarios as well as flannel, cobs and
mutton.

Recent research has revealed that the ‘Celebrated Blind Harper’ John Parry
gave a recital in the city, and other notable visitors included the ‘Little
Cambrian Prodigy’ Elizabeth Randles and the ‘Infant Cambrian Harpist’ Master
Hughes.

Artistic Director of the Gregynog Festival since 2006, Dr Rhian Davies is a historian of Welsh music and an Honorary Fellow of Bangor University.
