We thought it would be amazing if as many nyckelharpa players around the world could
play the same tune at the same time.
Now it's time to send in your videos! Don't worry if you haven't filmed it yet, it's fine to do it now!
The deadline is Sunday 2nd May - so you have a week after the day itself.

Sunday 25th April at 11am UTC (midday London time) join nyckelharpa players around the world in playing Lille Långdans från Binsjö! The idea is simple - just play the tune at 11am UTC (Midday London) and or 3pm PST. Video yourself and share on social media, can be at the time or later. If you play along to the guide track you can be added to a global video (edited together after the event). Whatever you do - play the tune and use the hashtag #worldnyckelharpaday in your social media! Click here to see a sample list of times to figure out when 11am UTC is (it's midday in London)
We would like to make a memory of this event – so to make it extra special we have prepared a score and a guide track. We would like you to play along to this guide track (using headphones!) and film yourself. Post your video to social media, livestream it, tag it! Then send it in and we will edit all the movies into one big video to show us marking World Nyckelharpa Day 2021. This video doesn't have to made at 11:00 UTC - you can do it before or after! Instructions on how to film and send your videos in are below.
The most important thing is to play the tune at 11am UTC and to have fun!
