Fascinating instrument, the "music" not so much.

@bob-jackman I saw Richard Thompson play the hurdy gurdy during his 1000 Years of Popular Music. Unfortunately, I can’t find a video of any of those performances, but you might enjoy his music more than the clip above.

Definitely a unique and catch sound. It still in my head long after hearing it. Thanks JK.

Richard Thompson is awesome! I have all but his early stuff (with Fairport Convention, & his stuff with his former wife Linda).  I’ve seen him a few times…great artist.

Be sure to get his more recent stuff too.
