Andrea Balocco


Meet Italian musician Andrea Balocco. He plays one of the most visually appealing instruments-the hurdy-gurdy. Musical influences include: Sergio Berardo, Nigel Eaton, Patrick Bouffard, Anne-Lise Foy, Grégory Jolivet and Kevin Dalot. He records solo or sometimes with an ensemble. His music is a combination of French folk with leanings on Scottish Celtic music. Personally, I haven’t heard someone this good since Nigel Eaton.

  1. Great instrument- I have one at home my Dad made for me. I notice you write that it is a ‘visually appealing instrument’….you mean you like the way it looks but don’t like the way it sounds!? 😉
