(IotW) The Nyckelharpa

The Nyckelharpa really cool sounding folk instrument from Sweden:

As the marvelous Griselda explains, it is one of the only keyed bowed instruments in the world. Its extra strings give it a cool natural reverb effect.

You might think “Wow, I’ve never heard of that!” but its an instrument that’s gaining popularity due to its unique sound- we even have two nyckelharpa players in Eynsford!
