The nyckelharpa, a keyed fiddle from Sweden, has the voice of an angel, but the soul of the devil. 12 sympathetic resonating strings, 4 bowed strings, 37 keys with which to change the pitch of the note, it is an incredible instrument. The oldest iconography dates back to the medieval times and has an unbroken line of development up to the modern day. If you've seen or heard a nyckelharpa and would like a go, this workshop is for you. You’ll get to be up close and personal with the instrument and learn a few simple tunes. No need to be able to read music, but music will be available. This course is suitable for total beginners.
