Music : Singers, Bands, Pop & Rock Stars
Wales has a fantastic musical heritage. One of the few things the Romans ever wrote about the celtic tribes refered to the songs Britons would sing. Roman author Athenaeus describes songs performed by guests at Celtic feast and ceremonies, the signers were known as 'Bards'. Two thousand years later we have bards like Tom, Kelly and Aled Jones, Andy Low, Bryn Terfel, Cerys Matthews, Charlotte Church, Dave Edmunds and many many more!
