Vicki will introduce the album, teach some tunes from it and maybe even have the full crew in residence so we can do a play-along-in-Zoom. (Using some nyckelharpa magic to fix the ever present latency issue....) 17:30 Zoom room closes for sound checks and change of audience.

20:00 - 22:00 - Evening Concert in Zoom given by Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer

Vicki's nyckelharpa extravaganza. (The exact name of the show isn't decided yet!) This will be a preview of a show that will guarantee seven different sorts of nyckelharpas. Histories and stories never heard before. It is still in production with only two weeks to go, so it could be a little random on the night.  What is guaranteed is around an hour and a half of good music and all seven nyckelharpas!

This is a preview evening / tech run. So we are just asking for donations. Get in touch via the google sign up form if you'd like to come:

After this date it goes on tour - virtually of course!
