French love for the hurdy gurdy

Recommended Posts

Hurdy Ggurdy musical instrument continued to be popular in France. For example, when peasants from the French countryside moved to Paris in search of jobs, they brought the hurdy gurdy with them. This musical instrument continued to be in use until the late 19 th century, when it was replaced first by the diatonic button accordion, and then the chromatic button accordion, as they were easier to play and less troublesome to maintain. Finally, it may be said that in recent decades, there has been a revival of interest in the hurdy gurdy in Europe , as well as in North America.
