Music from the South-West of Ireland
In this illustrated presentation, Jackie and Matt talk about their formative musical influences with particular reference to the Sliabh Luachra tradition in the southwest of the country, and also teach some tunes, particularly from its rich repertoire of slides and polkas. This workshop is not instrument-specific, and so participants who play any of the traditional melody instruments are welcome to attend. Also, anyone else who wishes to sit and listen is equally very welcome.
