March Musings

I can't believe it's March already! We now have only six months to do until the extravaganza that is going to be the Halsway Manor Nyckelharpa Festival weekend. We have a full complement of beginners now, so if anyone wanting to be a beginner on a Halsway weekend is going to have to wait until 2016. Do get in touch if I can get enough people interested in a weekend in the first half of 2016 I may be able to organise something.... Mail me!

IVicki Swann workshop 9 had a wonderful time down in Dorset performing The Whispering Road and running an afternoon workshop. I wrote a polska on the fly, I'll get round to writing it out and posting it up on this site as soon as I can.

I was really happy to finally meet a UK made nyckelharpa. A very nice gentleman from Harlow made it years ago and sold it, but told me that he'd made one. I finally got to meet it. Currently tuned as a tenorharpa I'm pretty sure I'll cross paths with that instrument in the future tuned back as a standard Swedish tuned instrument.

I've been busy with the videos that I recorded ready for my Halsway participants as a playlist - these are going to be made available a new video each week, so watch out for them!

Another update before the end of the month hopefully!
