Week 14: Hello April

Read Time:1 Minute, 54 Second

It's April and I'm not totally sure how that happened! This meant that last Monday was April Fools Day and just like last year I decided to do a News Report. If I'd been organised I would have created it and shared it with everyone last week, but as it was I completed the video on Sunday ready for sharing on Monday 1st April. I started to set this Newscast back in January whilst we were at the Eric Sahlström Institute, so I'd like to thank everyone who humoured me whilst filming on the Sunday night! The Byss-Callemärke is now well and truly launched! Although the News Bulletin was done in humour - of course I made some badges, so you can buy them! I've made a new page where you can get hold of the Spelborgarmärkes and the Byss-Callemärkes - just remember, they're just for fun!

So what's new? I've been really busy filming and recording and preparing for World Nyckelharpa Day. Whilst we were at Halsway Manor last week we grabbed the camera and filmed a session for World Nyckelharpa Day, edited and put it up ready. Then I filmed all the tunes required for that session! So this week we have the first two tune lessons: Excuse Me and Black and Grey.

Catch Club this week is Five Reasons.
On the Scottish Smallpipes we have SSP Tutor Chapter 3 part 2 . This is still a work in progress, but gradually the whole tutor will move over!

We are in Zoom on Sunday playing for Symmetry dance, so grab the music and come along. Or watch again afterwards, the link will come out next week.
Again I'm featuring one of our lockdown sessions: Lockdown Halsway Bar Session 1. It's a nice simple session, but definitely a step up from the one I featured last week!

As we get closer to World Nyckelharpa Day I'll be spending more time on that. So make sure you're thinking about what tune you'd like to film and send me so that I can add it to the WND website! You don't have to have an active membership to my music room to do this - I just need lots and lots of videos!
More next week!
