Connemara, Co. Galway, Ireland (PRWEB) August 03, 2012
Connemara Ireland Workshops is pleased to announce a 5-day /4-night traditional Irish music workshop for October 19-23, 2012. Hosted by and held at the award-winning country house, The Anglers Return, the workshop will feature some of Ireland’s most distinctive traditional musicians – including John Carty on fiddle and Irish tenor banjo, Arty McGlynn on guitar, Jimmy Higgins on bodhrán and Fiachra O’Regan on whistle and pipes. Guests will attend classes during the day, impromtu evening sessions as well as two house concerts – including a concert with John Carty, Arty McGlynn, Jimmy Higgins and friends – all in the comfortable surroundings of a wonderful historic country house just outside of Roundstone in Connemara. It’s an incredible opportunity for intermediate (or better) players on fiddle, tenor banjo, and/or guitar interested in advancing in traditional Irish music. Spaces are very limited, by design, to maximize one-on-one instruction and are offered on a first-come, first serve basis.
The workshop is all-inclusive, with accommodations and all meals provided – including classic Irish breakfasts at The Anglers Return, lunches, tea/snacks during workshop breaks and dinners at some of the finest restaurants in Clifden, Roundstone and Recess. Transportation to/from Dublin city hotels and/or Dublin or Shannon airports, and all transportation during the workshop will be provided in a 14-seat, luxury minibus. No effort has been spared to make this incredible Irish culture experience as relaxing and enjoyable as it will be educational. Non-musician companions are also welcome for a reduced workshop rate and are offered optional day trips and touring around Connemara during workshop classes.
