The nyckelharpa is a traditional Swedish instrument that has been played, in one form or another, for more than 600 years.

Benny said that he was a big fan of the sound of the instrument and that learning to play something new is good for the mind. Sören Åhker, the master craftsman who made Benny’s instrument said that Benny’s eyes twinled like a child’s on Christmas Eve when he took delivery.

Perhaps we should look out for it to be credited on a new BAO album?!
