A crwth is a Welsh stringed folk instrument. There are only four examples of original crwths in existence, but they were commonly played throughout what is now the UK until the 18th century. Crwth is also a great Scrabble word.
We chose the name Crwth because we like how music brings people together, and we want Crwth Press to do the same thing. Also, it’s an oddball word, and we are an oddball press.
