In Austria the hurdy gurdy was popular until the beginning of the 20th century, especially in Tyrol. Due to the long period of Austria and Hungary being joined under the Habsburg Empire, Austrian hurdy gurdies are very similar to the ones from Hungary. This instrument is one of the first made by the renowned Viennese luthier Richard Jenner, it sounds in A with the melody string tuned in e', the snare in a and the drone in A. The piece is a dance played around 1820 by the Viennese hurdy gurdy duet "The Fat Boys" (in Viennese "De Bladn Buam").

Beverly Dobrinsky sings an extremely beautiful and haunting Ukrainian folk song about suffering, accompanying herself on the hurdy gudry. She sings a bilingual version in Ukrainian and English. The song was presented as part of the panel "Memory Everlasting: Post-Peasant Cultural Sensibilities from the Canadian Prairies: the Art and Vision of the 3rd Generation" which took place at Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, September 15, 2007. It was part of the "'Last Best West' or Just Like the Rest" conference on Western Canadian Identity. "Where ever I go, there is trouble everywhere, where ever I go there is no good anywhere." Beverly Dobrinsky is the leader of the Slavic soul ensemble Zeellia: www.zeellia.com.

In which an amateur hurdy gurdyist grinds out a tune. Who was the inventor of this exotic instrument? What was the inspiration? Did he stumble upon an important channel of artistic expression, or did he just have too much time on his hands? You be the judge! Oh, and can you name that tune?

before a gig with david lynch in edinburgh donovan announced he is goin to open the 'invincible donovan university' in scotland. he then proceeded to play a song by the same name. forgive the camera shake and laughter but he really was singing 'invincible donovan university'. hohohoho. the guy is a genius but mad as a bowl of fruit loops. more gentle folk music at http://www.brawth.com as a reward the second half contains his classic hurdy gurdy man including a previously unheard verse written in the 60s by george harrison.

Using a program called Celestia, i made this thing, added Donovan's "Hurdy Gaurdy Man" and then tacked on two quotes at the end. If you can't read the quotes due to technical issues, here they are. The first is from Leon Trotsky: "But whatever may be the circumstances of my death, I shall die with unshaken faith in the Communist future. This faith in man and in his future gives me even now such power of resistance as cannot be given by any religion . . . I can see the bright green strip of grass beneath the wall and the clear blue sky above the wall, and sunlight everywhere. Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression, and violence, and enjoy it to the full." I removed the word "communist" from the video because I'm afraid people are not yet fully aware of what communism is and who Leon Trotsky was. Second two quotes are from Dr. Carl Sagan: Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. and: We are star stuff which has taken its destiny into its own hands. Thank you for watching/at least reading this. namaste!

The second hit from famed 60's Laurel Canyon band The Happy Lads. Recorded shortly before adding band members and forming the super-group Amethyst (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBv1mBkUCZw), this song was a mind-blowing trip through the 7th dimension of consciousness, wrapped in a powerful anti-drug message. Dig it, man.

This is a Hurdygurdy at The Carousel Museum in Bristol, Connecticut. A bit of trivia for you. There is a difference between a Merry-Go-Round and a Carousel. Carousels only have horses and they can be fixed in position, or go up and down. Merry-Go-Rounds can have sleighs/carts for several people to sit in, and different kinds of animals, all of which are fixed in position. Grabbing at the brass ring (if the ring you pulled was brass, you got a free ride, the other rings were of tin -- and you had to give all of them back) was only on carousels. The carousel horses that are looking upward are called stargazers. In general, if you really look at them, the traditional carousel horses have terrified looks on them and the bit is pulled painfully tightly against their jaws. They don't look happy. They look angry and frightened. Carousels used to travel from city to city in the summer and announcements would be made weeks in advance. They were a big deal. People would come from miles around. Most of the carousel horses carved during the height of their popularity were carved by one man.

We came across this street performer in Budapest's Vaci Street near the Inner City Parish Church. According to Wikipedia the hurdy-gurdy has a well developed tradition in Eastern Europe, in particular in Hungary, Poland, Belarus and Ukraine. After a decline in the 1930's, the instrument is undergoing a revival and also is being used in various ethnographic ensembles. The performer was wearing what looked like traditional eastern Eurpoean tight waisted dark blue woven wool cherkesska(?), leather boots, and a feathered wool hat. Please post if you know the origin of the costume or the identity of the performer.
