The nyckelharpa is the most ethereal and amazing of instruments, nearly lost to the world but kept safe in a small region of Sweden. This wonderful instrument is now coming to a town near you!

The Nyckelharpa Effect’s aim is to run workshops with instruments provided (maximum 8 participants) and introduce as many people to this wonderful instrument as possible. Most workshops are in the UK – but as an EU citizen it is possible for me to be able to travel and work in the EU.

This website is designed to be a resource and hub for teaching, workshops. If you’ve seen a nyckelharpa and would like a go (and are based in the UK), these workshops are for you. Workshops are kept to small numbers and instruments are provided. During the pandemic all teaching has gone online into a dedicated online virtual learning environment, so go and visit Vicki’s Virtual Music Room.
