World Nyckelharpa Day
Byss-Calle's - Skålarna Video
April 26 is World Nyckelharpa Day - a day dedicated to the nyckelharpa. Celebrations are being held around the world on this day, Byss-Calle's birthday. To celebrate we're encouraging groups that include nyckelharpa to record Byss-Calle's tune - Skålarna. The videos received will be edited together into a video showcasing Skålarna and the nyckelharpa to the world.
To participate, you'll make a good quality video of your group playing Skålarna and then upload it to be included in the final edited video. We ask that you follow these steps to complete your group's video:
Step 1 :
Step 2 :
Set up your phone/camera to record a video at an appropriate distance to get both good picture and sound quality.

Step 3 :
