Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Hurdy-Gurdy likely originated from European and Middle Eastern fiddles, and was designed to be played on the lap.
  • The Hurdy-Gurdy is hand-cranked, using a rosined wheel to replace the typical bow found in fiddles and violins.
  • While the Hurdy-Gurdy is considered a stringed instrument, it shares many features with other drone instruments such as the Didgeridoo and the Bagpipes. The instrument relies on a solid droning note in the backdrop, while keys pressed on other parts of the neck play additional notes.
