Hardingfele music (hardanger fiddle music)

Posted by jerry on May 15th, 2006 — Posted in Journal, Music

After doing a bit of a hunt for a hardanger bridge, I stumbled across Lennart Sohlman’s Swedish Fiddle site – and he has a delightful collection of tunes in sheet, abc and midi format from all over Scandinavia – from Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Want to buy a new hardanger fiddle? Wulffenstejn has a full price list 🙂 But I think I’ll be happy with mine for quite a while yet.

And from the sublime to the … er… creative: This fellow makes instruments by finding ways to adapt existing ones into new forms, or, even new instruments out of old boxes, bits of PVC pipe and so on.

Hey Jerry,
I spotted a guy at a market in woop woop queensland last week that was making banjo-type things out of old arnotts biscuit tins!!

I guess there’s not much to do in WoopWoop Qld other than making banjos from old Arnotts biscuit tins 🙂 I did make a fiddle out of a cigar box once 🙂
