Alongside her work as one of the finest players and teachers of the Hardanger fiddle she has collaborated with musicians from many different countries and musical cultures and in the last few years has been establishing herself as a composer. She is an experienced workshop leader and teaches in US as well as being a regular guest teacher of the London Hardingfelelag. (Participants of this workshop will need to bring their own hardanger fiddle).


Nyckelharpa workshop with Eléonore Billy


Eléonore Billy is a pioneer for the nyckelharpa in France and has a reputation as one of the finest players of the instrument in Europe. She has wide experience of teaching nyckelharpa and regularly runs courses for an every growing body of students. As a player she has collaborated with musicians from many different countries and musical cultures and has explored the possibilities of the nyckelharpa in a wide variety of musical contexts, ranging from electric trip hop to a harp and nyckelharpa duo. As the first French player to study at the Eric Salhstrom Institute she has a deep knowledge of Swedish traditional nyckelharpa music and a repertoire of hundreds of tunes.

Evening concert at the Sailors Church -

on Ramsgate harbour
with SYM TRIO :

-Anne Hytta from Oslo on Hardanger fiddle
-Eleonore Billy from Paris on Nyckelharpa and hardanger fiddle
-Clare Salaman from London on Nyckelharpa, hardanger fiddle and hurdy-gurdy

"With their engaging mix of original and traditional music from Northern Europe and Scandinavia, SYM have a rare crossover appeal for both classical and folk-orientated audiences. Since SYM was formed in 2007, Clare Salaman, Eléonore Billy and Anne Hytta have been receiving acclaim for their performances and more recently for their debut CD, Symbiosis, which was released in Oslo in April 2008. 

Their music is played on a collection of unique instruments, all of which have sympathetic (resonating) strings - the Norwegian hardingfele (fiddle), Swedish nyckelharpa (keyed fiddle) and the hurdy gurdy. Both visually exciting and with an ethereal sound, these are instruments which never fail to fascinate audiences. "

Doors open at 19.00 for a 19.30 start .
tickets £10 - children under 13 £7.
