Irish Music Workshop

January 16, 2018 - 4:30pm

Eugene Violin Shop /Johnson Violins LLC and the CCPA present a Traditional Irish Music Workshop from 4:30 to 5:30 pm on Tuesday, January 16 and on Tuesday, January 30.

In this two session workshop participants will be taught multiple Irish jigs and other traditional Irish tunes, take a one week break for practice, and then return to play them in a group setting.

Cost is $10 for both sessions, $7 drop-ins.

SESSION 1:  An introduction to two traditional Irish jigs! Students will learn these first tunes to practice in the interim before the second session.  Bring your fiddles, mandolins, flutes, concertinas and guitars or any other folk instrument.  

SESSION 2: Workshop attendees and instructors will play the first set of tunes learned in the previous class as a group, and learn two more tunes to add to your repertoire!  Bring your instrument.  

All are welcome, but the class is more suited for intermediate or advanced players that would like to learn how to play Irish style.
