Fiddlecam photos of the Greenbank Buskers out again for the annual Greenbank Ceilidh. Sorry about the blue, but that was their lighting scheme for the evening! Taken in our first break whilst the young pipers played. Photos from the fiddle section.
I always wanted to go to Mars ?
The nyckelharpa has been to visit the Edinbal session – lots of French dance tunes, a few Swedish too. Thanks Josefina Paulson for “Spikens Vals” (taught at Halsway a week or so ago) which was shared to the session, also the An Dro taught by Johannes Mayr at Halsway last year. Great fun, great selection of instruments!
A privilege to play kontrabasharpa in the largest gathering of players of the instrument in the UK – many thanks Vicki Swan! Having heard what Magnus Holmström can do with my kontrabasharpa, I now need to start playing it more and talking about it less
A regular feature of the September nyckelharpa extravaganza at Halsway is the Parade – we all go outside and process, playing lovely tunes, into the Manor entrance hall. An occasion for lots of fun photos!
Let’s Ride Edinburgh – streets without cars (also the start of the Tour of Britain, of course …)
