My blogger blog about the nyckelharpa. Mostly about pedagogy and hands on teaching, but maybe about other stuff too. A new tune each friday - #tunefriday. The tunes are linked to my nyckelharpa education website: http://www.nyckelharpa.me.uk

The Irish Washerwoman
The Irish Washwoman - the first folk tune I ever learnt (on the recorder). I can't remember what key I played it in then, but it was on the treble recorder, so quite possibly in this key. This is a lovely key for a C tuned harpa and a really great tune. It's great for practising string crossings and bowings.
