Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer have developed a reputation for inspired & enchanting performances. Vicki plays the Swedish nyckelharpa, an instrument attracting a growing following in this country. Having amassed an almost complete collection of nyckelharpas across the ages Vicki will teach the music dedicated to each type. See www.nyckelharpa.me.uk (Some nyckelharpas will be available to try).
The workshop will take you on a nyckelharpa journey charting its development from the 1408 Sienaharpa, Moraharpa, kontrabasharpa and ending with the 19th century silverbasharpa. Some nyckelharpas are available to borrow: Book early to reserve an instrument. Any chromatic instrument is also welcome. Some music will be sent in advance.
