Nyckelharpa. It sounds prettier than it sounds.
The nyckelharpa might be the duck-billed platypus of the music world. Swedish in origin, it combines the strings of a violin, the shape of steel guitar or violin and keys used to change tones or pitch. A cousin of the hurdy gurdy, this odd instrument always delights audiences. Musician Sandra Wong knows how to make her nyckelharpa sing; check out the video below and then see her in concert this weekend.
Saturday, April 27, 2-3 p.m.
Central Library, Level 1 Schlessman Hall
Our great hall will be a place of joyful noise this Saturday. Fresh City Life is proud to present this very special solo violin and nyckelharpa concert.
