Went to a session in the Steam Packet Inn, Isle of Whithorn on Sunday afternoon. Lots of fun. The nyckelharpa met a hurdy-gurdy but they didn’t play together. I don’t think you can cross breed them either, they’re different species 😉
Bellevue Rendezvous were playing in St Giles cathedral in Edinburgh today – great as always. Ruth’s nyckelharpa is a 4-row one, not a 3-row like mine so it was interesting to see one in detail … (see under Anorak, Nyckelharpa )
Great session in the Wigtown Ploughman (now the Craft restaurant – 2018) yesterday afternoon – the nyckelharpa had its first truly public outing, and there were lots of great musicians there. Good fun.
