my best friend and my gurdy
art by my cousin Kerry McFall – a new post on her blog at www.gallerynouveau.biz features "Aku the Hurdy Gurdy dog!"
I learned on our recent visit to Sonoma that my cousin Rob is a big fan of Hurdy Gurdys – wait, what? A hip graphic artist guy in NorCal, into yoga and not into gluten, and his true passion is a Medieval instrument that sounds like a collision between a bagpipe and an electric keyboard and a Tennessee fiddler? I am always fascinated by what inspires the passions that drive people’s lives.
The instrument itself is beautiful...
