Vicki Swan

An enjoyable, full-on, fun packed workshop week for the more confident nyckelharpa player. This four day course is designed as the next progression for learners that have worked their way through beginners, intermediate and are looking for something more advanced to get their teeth into. There will be a big emphasis on technique, exercises, studies and less on straight tune learning. For more information contact Vicki Swan 07721 519719

Vicki Swan is well known across the UK and beyond as one half of folk duo Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer. Once known mainly for for their instrumental skills with Scottish smallpipes, accordion and Swedish nyckelharpa, they are now gaining recognition as impressive song arrangers and writers.

Vicki, who plays an assortment of less-than-mainstream instruments (Scottish smallpipes, Swedish nyckelharpa, English border pipes, Swedish bagpipes and more) is very much at the forefront of the current surge of interest in the Nyckelharpa in the UK. She plays as a member of the European Nyckelharpa Orchestra, runs Nyckelharpas at Halsway and also teaches internationally at festivals and events.
