We received two more answers to Mario Daigle’s request for information regarding hurdy-gurdies.

Debbie Suran from Deer Isle, ME writes:
I know of one book devoted to the hurdy-gurdy: The Hurdy-Gurdy by Susan Palmer, David and Charles Publ., North Pomfret, VT 05053, ISBN 0-7153-7888-0. It’s rather dry, but you have to take what you can get.

Harry Schwab from Plymouth, MI writes:
A nice kit for the hurdy-gurdy is made by Musicmaker’s Kits, Inc., 423 S. Main, Stillwater, MN 55082.
