WORLD NYCKELHARPA DAY: Sue Ferrers Trio and Friends

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Sue Ferrers plays the hauntingly beautiful but rare Swedish nyckelharpa, or keyed-fiddle, an instrument dating back to the Middle Ages. She learned and honed the craft of playing nyckelharpa while living in Germany where she worked as a freelance musician, playing everything from intimate concerts in church settings to Gothic Rock in sold-out stadiums. Back in Queensland, Sue has teamed up with former Natives of Bedlam guitarist, Evan Clarry, and bass-player Bob Harley (Funky Miracle, Sunset Junk) to bring an eclectic mix of European folk melodies in new clothes, taking the audience on a magic carpet ride to exotic, faraway lands of times gone by. An experience not to be missed!

This concert is to celebrate WORLD NYCKELHARPA DAY. We are pleased to be presenting one of the first concerts for the global event. This day coincides with the birthday of renowned and influential Swedish nyckelharpa player Byss-Calle (Carl Ersson Bössa, 1783–1847). The Sue Ferrers Trio will be joined by two other Brisbane nyckelharpa players, Emma Nixon and Rebecca Karlen. Perhaps this will be the first concert in Queensland ever with 3 nyckelharpa players on stage at once!!
