World Nyckelharpa Day is all about nyckelharpa players around the world celebrating this wonderful instrument. So if you have an idea for celebrating - run with it! Get in touch to have your event (online or face-2-face) and we will add it to the list of events on the events page.
Make sure that you use the hashtag
You could also include: #nyckelharpa #moraharpa #kontrabasharpa #silverbasharpa #keyed-fiddle
At 11:00am UTC (Midday London UK) time we would like as many people to play Björnlåten as possible. We would like to make this into a big video after the day. So film yourself as you play this and send it in to us, we will edit it together. This means you need to play to a guide track with headphones on. CLICK HERE for all the instructions and the music!
Make sure you film yourself and put this online with the #worldnyckelharpaday hashtag!
Holding an event? Use this date as an excuse to shout about the nyckelharpa from the rooftops! Get in touch to get your event added to our list.
There is a manuscript of 56 of Byss-Calle's tunes. We are planning a video playlist of as many of these tunes as possible. Get in touch to get your video submitted. Click here to see the list of tunes and to find out if it is already assigned!
Taking part can be as simple as making a video of yourself an uploading it to Youtube. You can submit your video to us and we'll add it to the official youtube channel (coming soon) or upload to yours, tag it and let us know where it is and we'll add it to a playlist.
We will be active on Youtube, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Make sure you follow us!
Film and send us a video of a tune of your choice and dedicate it to World Nyckelharpa Day (either send us the video, or give us a weblink!)
