Passionate hurdy gurdy player by 

A portrait of a passionate musician who told me all about the history of the Hurdy Gurdy an intriquing instrument.
While he plays the instrument I portrayed him.
Shot taken at the Hanse Event 2012 in Kampen the Netherlands.
Unfortunately I don’t have a sample of the music he made but here’s an impression of another player.
