John Geworkian Hellman:
A fabulous hurdy gurdy player from Sweden, who had been on many a wishlist for a while. We are pleased him as a teacher for the (far) to have advanced hurdy group guest! Curious? Then listen to already eensolo video or at a concert with a hurdy-gurdy quartet.
This amazing bagpipe player and builder from Sweden was years already invited back as a teacher, we gladly invite him out for the new group bagpipe (well) advanced! Listen to an already Alban Faust and Thomas Fredriksson or a video of Alban Faust and Valentin Arnold.
The program will include draailier- and bagpipe courses for beginners (half) and advanced (very) advanced. In addition, there are courses for singing, diatonic accordion (in g / c) interaction and nyckelharpa.
