Sue Ferrers in concert

 

Presented by Sue Ferrers

Beautiful Swedish nyckelharpa plays exotic folk music from bygone times.

Australian Folk Music Award finalist in 2023 and Queensland Music Award finalist 2024, Sue Ferrers plays the rare but hauntingly beautiful Swedish nyckelharpa,

or keyed-fiddle, a 16-string bowed instrument dating back to the Middle Ages and has enjoyed an on-going continuous tradition. There is more information about this instrument here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyckelharpa

After spending the last two decades releasing albums, playing intimate concerts in churches and touring stadiums and festivals throughout Europe, including Kieler Woche, Amphi Festival in Cologne, and the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Sue has returned to home soil, sharing her music that is “spellbinding and spherical” and “in its simple beauty can go straight to your heart and and will leave you yearning for more”. (Folker Magazine, Germany). The sound of her music is deeply rooted in tradition while remaining accessible to a wide and discerning audience.

Joined by Evan Clarry on acoustic guitar and Robert Harley on double bass, Sue will present an eclectic potpourri of European folk melodies, from the Sephardic Jewish music of Spain to Scandinavian Polskas and the reverie of the Scottish Highlands, taking the audience on a magic carpet ride to exotic, faraway lands of times gone by, on a journey to ancestral memories of purity, evocation and nostalgia.
