Skäggigtpolskan

Hello!
After a brief pause after Christmas we're started again! Time for a month of moraharpa tunes. So here is the first one. Skäggigtpolskan - the beardy polska. Goes like this! The dots at the bottom of the page are in two different keys. The one in D minor is a nice place to play it on the nyckelharpa and the other in the key of G minor is how I play it on the Moraharpa.

I do have a favour to ask - if you like the videos please subscribe to them on youtube. If you really, really like them you might like to use the donate button on the side of this page!

The Holly and the Ivy

Hello!
Happy 1st December! It's time for #christmas #tunefriday. So this week it's The Holly and the Ivy with a counter melody written by me.
I decided to experiment with an ensemble video. It's actually a quartet - but it turns out the fourth dress wasn't a different colour enough to the green screen and went a bit transparent....
:D

Italian Rant

Hello!
This week I thought I do a tune that was playable on the standard three row chromatic nyckelharpa and the moraharpa. There might be a few of these coming up over the next little while. :)
So this week we have The Italian Rant. It's in Playford's Dancing Master, but is a tune dating back to the start of the 1600s from Italy. (Oddly enough!) Enjoy!
