Ceylon Wallin was an icon in the world of nyckelharpa, almost as well known as Eric Sahlström. This workshop, associated with the Scandomania! festival, is taught by a Swedish musician who started playing nyckelharpa in 1980 after building his own instrument. One of his early teachers was Ceylon Wallin whose music he still loves to play.

For more information, contact Fred Bialy at bialy10@comcast.net. Please sign-up in advance using the Scandomania! registration form or by contacting Fred. For those not attending the festival, payment can be made at the nyckelharpa workshop.
