In this 3-hour workshop, we’ll explore the highly evocative and foot-tappingly contemporary world of Irish music. Designed for fiddle players of all backgrounds who want to expand their repertoires and develop a better understanding of what makes the Irish style so distinct. Discover why so many people are drawn to the music’s compelling blue note, its deep history, and the camaraderie of the session environment. Together we’ll learn at least two new tunes, exploring in depth their ornamentation, bowing, rhythm and style. Students should have some fiddle competency of advanced beginner to intermediate advanced. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.
