"Holiday Crank Spinning" : II (under-Carpathians's) Hurdy-gurdy meeting - Haczów, 11-12 lipca

During 11-12 of July 2015 in Haczów there was a kind of "rally" of wanderers from varous districts of Poland. The second time Haczów became a capital of hurdy-gurdy lovers and folk songs (dedicated to wanderers).

A meeting started on Saturday - there were hurdy-gurdy and singing workshops, which led Stanisław Nogaj, Maciej Harna, Maciej Cierliński and Mrs Barbara Bator - a member of "Vox Angeli" band and initiator of this event.

A guest of honor  of this metting was Stanisław Wyżykowski - senior of the hurdy-gurdy in Haczów, musician and hurdy-gurdy maker - one of the few traditional h-g makers.

It was special weekend and a great opportunity for the enthusiasts of folk music and wanderers' songs in all ages. It was also a chance to improve abilities and meet with other musicians and listen to wanderers' stories. The meeting was held in different places-sceneries: in the rooms of Comunity Culture  and  Rest Center in Haczów, on the streets of Haczów and in a barn of Stanisław Wyżykowski. The end and final concert crowning two-days workshop  - in severe interior of wooden Church in Haczów.

Solemn liturgy was held by monsignor Kazimierz Kaczor, in which hurdy-gurdies was playing. It reminds of inextricable link of folklore and the Church. The homily was delivered by the parson of Haczów's parish: priest Adam Zaręba. All the people were singing traditional  hymns in the melody variant known in Haczów. After the parish there was a concert of wanderers' songs. A mayor as a honorary patron of the meeting greeted visitors and hurdy-gurdy players. After that Mrs Barbara Bator invited for a concert. We could listen to very diffeent repertory, from Podkarpacie (under Carpathians's region), through Ukraine  to Scandinavia. The crank was spinned by: Stanisław Wyżykowski, Marta Sobota, Maciej Harna, Stanisław Nogaj, Andrzej Staśkiewicz, Piotr Wawrzkiewicz, Jan Malisz, Serhij Petryczenko, Maciej Bator, Paweł Semrau and others.
