A 350+ year Swedish Tradititon

Nyckelharpa making

Our Team

A family Company

The siblings Hillevi and Thor grew up with Swedish folk music, played on both fiddle and nyckelharpa. Together, they produce and develop the nyckelharpa in accordance with both function and aestetics.

Old and new

In our work, we are inspired by Eric Sahlström’s and Esbjörn Hogmark’s instruments as well as older, 19th Century instruments. We have also introduced some design-features of our own. Each of our nyckelharpa models have characteristic patterning.
