National Library of Wales press release - January 2004

"Alawon John Thomas - A Fiddler's Tune Book From Eighteenth Century Wales" ed. Cass Meurig, LLGC, 2004, 1862250421 Some of the ancient airs of the Land of Song will now see the light of day for the first time in over two hundred years in a new book published by The National Library of Wales. Alawon John Thomas: A fiddler's tune-book from eighteenth century Wales is edited by the renowned fiddler, Cass Meurig, and is a unique collection of tunes compiled by John Thomas, a well-known C18th fiddler from north east Wales whose manuscript is found amongst the National Library's collection.
