The Swedish Nyckelharpa

The nyckelharpa is the most ethereal of instruments, nearly lost to the world but kept safe in a small region of Sweden. This wonderful instrument is now coming to a town near you!

The UK nyckelharpa project's aim is to take nyckelharpas around the country and conduct workshops introducing as many people to this wonderful instrument as possible. If you've seen a nyckelharpa and would like a go, these workshops are for you. Workshops are kept to small numbers and instruments are provided.
