Nyckelharpa on Heat
Today has been a Good Day.
We have HEAT and lots of it. We also went to a folk concert at The Fold which was excellent. It also saves you from a photograph of something that looks distressingly like a pipefull of turd - we found a section, about a metre long, that had accumulated enough crud over the last decade to reduce the bore of the pipe to about 1/10th of what it was supposed to be. No wonder nothing was circulating any more.
Heat now zips round the radiators like ... a zippy thing.
Anyway, enough of that.
The concert that E had spotted and arranged last-minute tickets was excellent. Only four artists the whole evening but rotating around between doing solo or duet sessions, or as a four-piece.
The instrument is a Nyckelharpa (nope, the spellchecker's never going to find that.). A Swedish sort-of viola-meets-accordion-meets-hurdygurdy. Wonderful sound. Played by Vicki of Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer whom we'd highly recommend.
Returned to the hothouse. Nice.
