Origins

Musical spoons are a centuries-old instrument that we all know and love. They have been played as percussion instruments since antiquity, gaining special prominence in Irish and Celtic music. There are versions of the musical spoon all around the globe, from Brazil, Russia and Turkey to Canada and the United States. Our version of the musical spoons is what can be called the ‘’Canadian’’ adaptation. Attached together and handmade from maple wood; their unique design makes them easy to play, and gives them a unique and wonderful sound.
