About Rowlands Music

Rowlands Music - established in Cardiff nearly 100 years ago as a high street music shop which still supplies music for all instruments and voices (including examination pieces), books about music and musicians, music accessories and many other items of musical interest. In 2003 Elen Vining purchased Rowlands Music which is now part of and shares a shop with Telynau Vining Harps - distributors of Camac Harps.
