La Nef – O’Carolan’s Welcome to Sweden

A concert featuring the Swedish nyckelharpa, as well as the similarities among traditional Irish, traditional Swedish, and Baroque music. Original arrangements of compositions by Turlough O’Carolan (1670-1738) and of traditional Swedish music.

A nyckelharpa is a traditional Swedish musical instrument. It is a string instrument or chordophone. Its keys are attached to tangents which, when a key is depressed, serve as frets to change the pitch of the string.
