Ooh, sounds great, but I have a running commitment on weds. nights @ the moment.
But I am starting Comhaltas classes for Traditional Irish Fiddle tomorrow Sat 1/31/09 with Oishin McAuley of Danú so, I'm psyched!
Do keep us posted on how it turns out for ya... BTW The Irish Cultural Center in Canton, has a running Seisiún, if you want to hear some great Traditional Music being played. It's on Friday nights in the center's pub.
I'm so jealous of you!! I'd love to learn to play Irish fiddle music. When I was a teenager, I played the violin... haven't touched it in over a decade!! That's one way to get the thing back in my hands...
Join us for an exciting fusion of Celtic Music from Ireland, Scotland, Cape Breton, Scandinavia, and America. Performers include faculty and students from Berklee, Boston College, Harvard, Stonehill, and UNH, featuring John McGann (mandolin) and Natalie Haas (cello); Matt Glaser (violin), The Folk Arts Quartet, Jimmy Noonan (flute), Kimberly Fraser (fiddle), and Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers. We will also have a bodhran, a Hardanger fiddle, nyckelharpa, accordion, octave fiddle, and, at the end of the evening, an Open Session for more Celtic FUSION.
Joe Nugent of Boston College, Tom O'Grady of UMass, and Berklee's Henry Tate will read selections from James Joyce, W.B. Yeats, and original poetry. For program information, contact Joseph Coroniti, Editor-in-Chief, FUSION Magazine http://www.fusionmagazine.org/
