Renamed page John Parry Ddall → John Parry (harpist)[edit]

I'm not seeing sufficient sources to justify the article title John Parry Ddall (the vast majority simply refer to him as John Parry, at least as far as I've seen). There is another Welsh harpist named John Parry to disambiguate, but his article was already titled John Parry (Bardd Alaw), leaving the present title available. So I moved it, updated incoming links, and clarified with an about tag on both articles. --— Rhododendrites talk |  04:03, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Two issues:
  1. For folk music, the usual term is "harper" rather than "harpist". Indeed, "harper" is the word used in one of the cited works.
    • One might have John Parry (harpist) for Bardd Alaw and John Parry (harper) for Parri Ddall, but that seems too nice a distinction.
  2. The fact that a title is available does not make it appropriate.
    • Title John Parry (harpist) ought to be a {{Redirect from incomplete disambiguation}} (Ditto John Parry (harper))
    • This biographical article moved to a title or disambiguator that does not apply to Bardd Alaw. Possible titles:
      • Natural disambiguation: John Parry Ddall, Parri Ddall, Blind Parry, Blind Parry of Ruabon, John Parry of Ruabon, etc.
      • Parenthetic disambiguation: John Parry (blind harper), John Parry (born 1710), John Parry (Ruabon harper), etc. jnestorius(talk) 16:45, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
