I've just put together the final details for a workshop down in Lewes. It's a mixed sort of workshop, but very led on the nyckelharpa with nyckelharpa players in mind. The workshop is looking like this at the moment. I want to take the participants on a journey. From the old cowhorn tunes, the moraharpa and säckpipa (which between us Jonny and I have been working on a lot in getting the Zorn Bronze award). The I wanted everyone to have a bit of a Byss-Calle experience. Since I got up close and personal with him in the show I wanted to bring him out to play (not literally, although I it is a possible request...) So there should be something for everyone!
- Exploring the old tunes, from cowhorn to moraharpa and säckpipa (Swedish pipes).
- Byss-Calle – meet the amazing Swedish nyckelharpa master himself; exploring his tunes.
- More complicated tunes and rhythms
In summary (I need to keep the titles short and snappy this is what we're looking at.
So book up now - Sunday 17th September. -> click here!
