A 100-Year-Old Guitar

Two men, Kornel Mariusz Radwanski and James Kline, are musicians who play 100-year-old guitar-like instruments. The music James and Kornel play is called "nyckelharpa."  Nyckelharpa is ancient Celtic, or Irish, music.

Though the guitars are 100 years old, they sound beautiful. James and Kornel play a song, "Greensleeves," that was referenced in William Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, a play with a main character called Lady Greensleeves.
