Documenting the curious world of the hurdy-gurdy.

Season: Mark Hoogslag and Maressa McConkey

Gurdypedia has been nice enough to highlight my hurdy-building struggle at:     http://www.gurdypedia.com/post/20510573554/building-a-hurdy-gurdy-a-medieval-synthesizer

….as recorded on Flickr. Since then, I have used my hurdy as a bass drone instrument, using a cello string on it. One of this year’s songs is shown here. It featues Maressa from England, me, Mark Hoogslag, from Holland, my hurdy which I built in Poland, and we wrote and recorded the song in my present home town of Regensburg, Bavaria.
