Kaki King's current show, "The Neck is a Bridge to the Body" is really amazing. Such a great show at the Doug Fir last night. If you get a chance to see this show, I give it the highest recommendation! Just one example:

Okay, more hints on the top secret project! You may have seen the cello videos I posted this winter, & you may have seen the Icelandic poems on RFBanjo! Now we have the langspil--according to Wikipedia: "The Langspil is a traditional Icelandic drone zither.... Snd since it only has 1 melody string with 1 to 5 drone strings (usually 2) it is easy to learn to play it compared with more complicated instruments. The langspil can be played by plucking the strings by hand, with a bow or by hammering."
