Now is the time for learning to hand-make those instruments for sure, if anyone has the leisure and inspiration to. I have heard hurdy-gurdy music in folk circles in the UK but not v common. Trailing edge musical technology I guess =D

And the portative organ is something I have not even heard of before. Beautiful.
