Welcome to the May News-shot.

The UK Nyckelharpa Society website has been live for a little under two months and everything is shaping up. ūüôā ¬†We have makers, we have strings, we have workshops and meetings. ¬†A quick rundown of activity since the last news:

Pete has become a supplier for Prim strings, you no longer have to try to figure out who to get strings from.  Pete's your man.  (discount for society members) contact: pnrigg{a} (replace the {a} with @ )

Jeff's website is going from strength to strength.

We had the first full weekend meeting down in Essex with 9 players all meeting for a weekend in a lovely little pub.  Followed swiftly by a northern meet up in Sheffield.  Time to plan the next  meeting!

There are now more and more sessions with nyckelharpas, check out the sessions section of the site.  There are always 4 spare to try at the 6S session.

The first nyckelharpa weekend at Halsway Manor is set up and ready to accept participants.  Again, nyckelharpas available to borrow for the weekend.

We're in the middle of putting together our first proper newsletter, so watch this space!
