The Research

When I took up the nyckelharpa I had just finished my masters degree in education and I feel inspired to keep researching. So since 2012 I have been running some longitudinal research on the take up of the nyckelharpa in the UK. This is still running – so if you haven’t answered my questionnaire I’d love you to fill it in! The questionnaire is at the bottom. One day I’ll write it up into a proper paper – but in the meantime here are a couple of graphs for you!
My data tells me that of the people in the graphs – 17 have given up giving a total of 144 current players. But I know there are people out there that I haven’t reached!
