Fragile "ice instruments" will be gone by spring

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- They're among the rarest instruments in the world, but they'll be gone by Spring.

That's because the instruments from Sweden are all made of ice (although there are still strings and other parts made of metal or wood.)

Hearing is believing, because according to some, these instruments sound great.

They're so fragile, even the players' breath could make the instruments out of tune.

Tim Linhart, the ice-instrument maker has been doing this for the past 15 years. He holds the concerts in a remote Swedish town, just beneath the Arctic Circle.
