Geocache Description:

[FR] En face de la cache se trouve la maison de la vielle, l'un des derniers artisans fabricants de Vielle à roue. La vielle à roue est un instrument à cordes, frottées par une roue en bois au lieu d'un archet. La roue est tournée avec une manivelle de la main droite, pendant que la main gauche du musicien joue la mélodie sur un clavier.



The hurdy-gurdy is a stringed instrument that produces sound by a hand crank-turned, rosined wheel rubbing against the strings. The wheel functions much like a violin bow, and single notes played on the instrument sound similar to those of a violin. Melodies are played on a keyboard that presses tangents—small wedges, typically made of wood—against one or more of the strings to change their pitch. Like most other acoustic stringed instruments, it has a sound board and hollow cavity to make the vibration of the strings audible.
