The Northbrook Symphony Orchestra (Chicago area) will once more perform pieces featuring the Hurdy Gurdy as the solo instrument. The soloist, Jim Kendros, played a custom built gurdy for the occasion.
We are very pleased to announce that Jimmy Herman (banjo player/fiddler for the Carrie Underwood band!) plays an Altarwind Hurdy Gurdy! We are super excited to announce that we just crafted a hurdy gurdy for Jimmy Herman. If you haven't heard his name, you've almost certainly heard his music, as he plays fiddle, banjo & cittern for Carrie Underwood.
We had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy at Ms. Underwood's recent concert in Portland Or, where we delivered the instrument.
We are very excited that these wonderfully unusual instruments are gaining a stronger presence in pop & country music.
