New word for today: Crwth

What the heck is a Crwth????


The crwth, also called a crowd or rote, is a bowed lyre, a type of stringed instrument, associated particularly with Welsh music and with medieval folk music of England, now archaic but once widely played in Europe. Four historical examples have survived and are to be found in St Fagans National Museum of History, National Library of Wales, Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Have YOU ever heard on before?

  1. Should have bought a vowel from Vanna. Pretty sounding instrument. I had to know how to pronounce it and found it here:
    \ ˈkrüth \
