Bordertown Festival 2019
The Sackville Festival of Early Music
The Sound of Black Gold
Almost four years ago a fascinating instrument landed on the shores of Nova Scotia with Kirsty Money: the nyckelharpa.
A medieval instrument that is now having a revival in Europe, the nyckelharpa has many stories to tell through its depth of sound and magical resonance.
Kirsty plays the Swedish nyckelharpa, and although there is not a direct history with the instrument in North America, it’s unique sound and ability to enhance existing folk music traditions has led Kirsty and Jude to start exploring the vast traditional repertoire embedded in Maritime Canada. A tapestry of Swedish, Celtic and original tunes await listeners at the Bordertown Festival.
