    I love it!
    My uncle built a HurdyGurdy about 10 years ago and plays it all the time. Though in his opinion it is made for church hymns only. I think this would give him a heart attack. I still may send him the link. Lol

    Not the best demonstration of the instrument, but points for creative use.
    I first heard a hurdy gurdy in a concert setting in San Jose. The show was Plant/Page and they had an entire 10+ piece middle eastern rhythm section accompanying them. At one point there was an interlude with the just the rhythm section, with the hurdy gurdy out front.
    The drone sets up a vibration that, at that volume, just made your whole insides vibrate.....almost a spiritual quality to it.

    Page and Plant toured the world with a line-up including Charlie Jones playing bass and percussion, Michael Lee on drums, Porl Thompson (of The Cure fame) performing guitar and banjo, Najma Akhtar providing backup vocals, Jim Sutherland on mandolin and bodhrán, Nigel Eaton playing hurdy-gurdy, and Ed Shearmur adding Hammond organ with orchestral arrangements.

    Poor video, but here's that portion from the same tour in Oakland that same week.

    EDIT - wrong video link. Here's one that start with the Hurdy Gurdy solo.
    GGGGRRRRR - can't get it to start where I want. Hurdy Gurdy solo is at about the 43:00 mark.

    Amazing. First time I’ve ever heard of or even seen a Hurdy Gurdy! That’s pretty impressive.

    That's the point. It's so far from a nice Bourree that it's wonderful as it is.

    I've spent a lot of time over the decades with hurdy-gurdy players of all sorts. I respect the instrument enough not to play it...but I like it.

    Gotta love how 10th century technology still holds it's own against anything of today's "superiority".

    Yup...although that's more of an 18-19th century French version than the 10th century ones. Those often needed 2 people to play them.

    True. I've heard many a tribal drum that would take a lot of studio trickery to imitate and then still wouldn't have the, what's the word, 'feel', 'emotion' or, maybe, 'mojo', of the real thing.

    If you look at the cover of Deep Purple's LP "Deep Purple", you'll see the band are gathered beside one. There's a set of bagpipes to be seen as well - Bosch always had devils playing these instruments to torment the occupants of hell!
