Nyckelharpa and others

Glad to get out to a real session; we’re still moving about a bit due to venue availability which hasn’t settled down post-Covid, since so many venues were clobbered. Many thanks as always to Phil who is now juggling the venue organisation.

I have been waiting for a suitable occasion in nice weather to record this for a month or two. The tune has been on my list of those to learn properly for a while, and I think “Pigopolskan” is a great tune.

Recording near some running water seemed like quite a good idea, and I think it was. I must get a wind shield for the recorder though, there are one or two blowy moments. In fact I used this first proper take rather than the second as that one began with a loud buzzing insect on the microphone!
