Spring News

27/02/2014 in News


It's been a long and dark winter, but the flowers are starting to spring in the garden and exciting things are happening in the nyckelharpa world here in the UK.

• After  Clare Salaman's appearance on Midweek a couple of weeks back she is presenting the Early Music show on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday 2nd March. The show is dedicated entirely to the nyckelharpa. You can listen online for seven days after broadcast - Click here!

• Vicki Swan had an article published in the European String Teachers Asociation Magazine. Have a sneaky look at it here!
Booking is now open for the Halsway Manor Weekend on the 31st October - 2nd November 2014. Dates are also up for Halsway 2015. This is set to be a much larger weekend taking over the entire building with (hopefully) three tutors. The more people that are signed up early the better the chances are of three tutors!

• If you've found it hard to get hold of a case we now have our very own cases from the UK. Pete Rigg has cases for sale. Semi-rigid, they've got back straps and a lovely little protective sock for the bow.

There is plenty going on around the country, check out the gig lists* for these groups touring the country:

Bright Season (with Ella Sprung)
Nine Dais Wonder (with Clare Salaman)
Gavin Marwick Journeyman (with Ruth Morris)
Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer (with Vicki Swan)
