  • Robin Huw Bowen (born 1957) is a player of the Welsh triple harp, known in Welsh as Telyn Deires (English: Three-row Harp),. He was awarded the Glyndŵr Award in 2000. Born into the Welsh community in Liverpool, England, into a family originally from Anglesey, Bowen learned to play the Celtic Harp while at school, inspired by the Breton harper, Alan Stivell. In 1979 he received a degree in Welsh Language and Literature from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. He was first exposed to the Welsh Triple Harp by two members of the Welsh traditional music group Ar Log, brothers Dafydd and Gwyndaf Roberts. They had learned to play the instrument from Nansi Richards, one of the last traditional Welsh folk harpists from the previous generation. Although he regularly performs as a soloist, Bowen joined the Welsh traditional group Mabsant in 1986 and later joined . Since 1998 he has been a member of the Welsh 'super-group' . In 2004 he and four other Triple Harpists formed , the first Welsh Triple Harp 'Choir' to exist since that of Llanover Hall during its heyday at the beginning of the twentieth century. Robin Huw Bowen worked for many years at the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth.
