Introducing the all-in-one portable dance band: The Hurdy Gurdy! [Video]

OAE musician Adrian Woodward introduces us to the original all-in-one portable dance band, the hurdy gurdy.

“If I’d been a musician in the sixteenth century, I probably would have picked the Hurdy Gurdy because I imagine it would have made me very popular. Wherever I would have gone, I would have started a party.”

I’ve been wanting to get a Hurdy Gurdy for years, but after seeing for how much they go (usually over $1,000), I quickly forgot the idea!
