World Nyckelharpa Day
Just in case the details of the occasion may have passed you by, I’d like to mention that today (24th April ’22) is this year’s World Nyckelharpa Day. (See: http://worldnyckelharpaday.com/)
I’m sure many of us feel that, regrettably, the nyckelharpa is not as adequately represented in sessions as it might be, but there is a good deal in the Irish repertoire where it can make an excellent contribution. With this in mind, I’ve posted a 2-part setting of O‘Carolan’s ’Princess Royal’ as a case in point. If any Nyckelharpists out there would like to give it a try . . .
