Workshop: Paul McKenna & Andrew Finn Magill (Special Event)

  • 15 Apr 2017
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Janie Meneely's house (Carroll House), Takoma Park, MD
Join Paul McKenna & Andrew Finn Magill before their Saturday evening concert (see below) for a crash course in intermediate and advanced Irish & Scottish fiddle and guitar technique and how to play sensitively and sensibly with other musicians. Learn a few tunes by ear and unpack them a little to discuss ornaments, bowings, and rhythm. If you're a fiddler, the goal is to get you more confident in your playing and to strengthen your ear in recognizing subtleties in the music. For guitarists we will explore the techniques used for guitar accompaniment in Celtic mustic; you will learn the tunings, chord shapes and intricacies of playing guitar in this exciting context. The pace will be determined by the group. At Janie Meneely's house -- RSVP for directions: e-mail Mike Livingston. $25, members $15.
