Hurdy Gurdy....
« on: January 21, 2007, 03:36:18 pm »
I happened across a strange instrument recently Called a Hurdy Gurdy and I love 'em! Anybody out there play, know someone who  does,  or know someone who even OWNS a Hurdy Gurdy?  If not you can tell what you think of them, at least :3

Here's an Exceprt from a song with a Hurdy Gurdy if you want to give it a listen: http://melissatheloud.com/sound/01-canadian.mp3

For those curious as to what one looks like: http://www.e-m-s.com/cat/stringinstruments/symphony%20and%20hurdy%20gurdy/turner%20hurdy%20gurdy%202.jpg

I saw some guy playing one of those in the city last time I went. I had no idea what it was, but I really loved how it sounded.

It is very rare to see someone with a Hurdy Gurdy, since they were more popular in centuries past than they are now. I've seen and heard them before, only because of the Rennaissance fair we have locally.

Donovan did a nice song called "Hurdy Gurdy Man"

Yeah, but he was sweet and he loved kittens. That's a plus :3

I don't remember ever seeing or hearing one.
It looks wierd in my opinion.
