Classification

A bukkehorn is an ancient Norwegian musical instrument, made from the horn of a ram or a goat. It was traditionally used by shepherds and milkmaids on summer dairy farms in the high mountains, as a signal-instrument. When the Bukkehorn got finger holes it became possible to play melodies with it. The instrument has two blowing-techniques: the trumpet-principle is the most common, but the clarinet-principle is also used.
