Sunday 26 February 2006 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

The Hurdy Gurdy has played a significant part in European music since the middle ages. In Britain alone, paintings, prints and even carvings on cathedrals all point to the past popularity of this instrument.

Yet how many people today even know what it sounds like? Lucie Skeaping puts this right in the company of Hurdy Gurdy experts Nigel Eaton and Steve Tyler.
