This weekend's musical discovery, courtesy of my elder daughter. The musician is Amalie Bruun; the piece is a Danish folk song titled Två Konungabarn, Two Princes (Princesses? I'm not very good at Danish gender); the instrument is a Nyckelharpa. Myrkur (which is old Norse for darkness, like "murk") is a project of Bruun's, a sort of one woman black metal band. You can hear the metal pieces at the Myrkur web site. It's interesting, but someone needs to take this woman aside and tell her that her voice is wasted on that stuff.
