The nyckelharpa is at a very early stage in its life in the UK. So early that it has been possible to run some longitudinal studies. The data gathering is still in progress but at the time of writing there is an estimated nyckelharpa population in the UK of somewhere around 140. The following images are from these initial findings from 134 players. It is thought that there are still a few early adopters yet to be added to the data. In due course all the data will be written up in a paper - but until then here are two graphs.
If you are based in the UK and haven't yet responded it would be great to get your stats added to the graphs!
