Traditional Irish Music
One of the most informative places you can visit on the internet is Neil Brook's site. Neil is a maker and player from Lancashire, and he's got a page on playing Irish music on this instrument! I also play whistle, but the gurdy is my favorite!
Hi Judith, yes I have a Hurdy Gurdy myself.
I got it because my wife & I play in costume at Medieval type events & at local Castles & Hostoric Monuments, during the Summer & folks always love it, cause it's so unusual.
I actually have a page on it, on my own website about it & below that link, is one to a video of four of us playing up here in costume, on the Causeway Coast, at a Medieval Joust.
To be honest though, I don't play Irish Music on it, but save it for some lovely old French tunes.
