Beware the Hurdy Gurdy Man ...

On Saturday Roland and I met a man who lives nearby.
This man announced, "I play the hurdy gurdy."
"Wow!" I exclaimed; "Why not come along to our club?"

No, this youtube post is not the man we met, but it'll give you an idea.
The acoustically sensitive must provide their own ear defenders.

Like the Ovation guitar, the hurdy-gurdy, after 5 minutes, is something you love or never want to hear again. There are a few good exponents: Felicia Dale (of Pint & Dale, Seattle, USA), and Jon Loomes of Heretique did pretty well at Sidmouth '10. About other players: I am open-minded, but, alas, form is against you.
