Musicians (Posted on 2014-02-19) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Elfum and four of his friends- Ekum, Epum, Eskum and Evum gathered together frequently to play their musical instruments. One played a flute, one played a horn, one played a drum, one played a gourd instrument and one played a lyre (albeit not necessarily in that order.)

Each of four of the five friends lived near one of the others. It is known that:
  1. The one who played the flute lived next door to Eskum.
  2. Epum lived adjacent to the one who played the lyre, who was not Eskum.
  3. Evum, who did not play the drum, did not live near the one who played the flute.
  4. The one who played the horn and the one who played the flute, who was not Ekum, were neighbors.
  5. Ekum did not play the gourd or the drum.
From the above statements, determine who played which instrument and who lived near which of the others.
