Recording Nyckelharpa @ State Of The Ark

I spent a few days last week recording the wonderful Vicky Swan playing her Nyckelharpas @ State Of The Ark studios in Richmond. It's a traditional Swedish instrument that is a bit like a Cello or a Viola, (and is bowed), but has  keys which kind of act like frets (and make a cool cuh-CLUNK sound). Here's a snippet of what a Cello 'harpa sounds like 'in the room', and then a short video showing the cello tracked along with the viola. Enjoy!
