We’ve had a couple of changes to the programme.
Firstly, we’ve had no interest in Maire’s Hands on Harp class on Monday morning so, after consulting with her, we’ve cancelled it.
Instead, Maire will run a workshop on seventeenth and eighteenth century Irish harp music by composers other than Turlough O’Carolan.
Maire says – We’ll explore the beautiful legacy of music left by the lesser-known Irish harper – composers such as the Connellan Brothers and Cornelius Lyons, learn one or two of their tunes and discuss interpretation, harmonisation and accompaniment.
MUSIC READING PREFERRED BUT NOT REQUIRED. RECORDING DEVICES WELCOME. WORKSHOP SUITABLE FOR ALL INSTRUMENTS
As there will be no personalized tuition involved, this workshop does not have an extra charge for it.
The second change is that we will swap over the location of Maire’s workshop with Chris Newman’s guitar class. The guitar class will now be in the Maire kitchen and the Maire’s workshop will be in the (very aptly named) Maire hall.
