Some friends and I will be attending this…hopefully, we’ll come out of it knowing what we’re doing a bit better (at the moment, I’m the only one who actually knows anything about Irish music).

Ensemble workshop

Glad to hear you’ll be there Vil-hatarn. You and your freinds might think about taking the Ensemble workshop. Joe Derrane, Seamus Connolly, and John McGann will be conducting it together. That one is Saturday afternoon.

Does Joe Derrane teach C#/D or B/C (or both)?

Ensemble workshop

We are taking it. Last I heard, we’re the only ones signed up for it!


Nate, I’ll try to get back to you on Wed about Joe’s workshops.

Vil-hatarn, So that’s you. We have three for that workshop so far. That will be a great opportunity to get advice from some great musicians.

Box Workshops


Joe says he can do C#/D and D/C# box in the same workshop and we already have students for each workshop. He can teach B/C box up to an intermediate level. If you are interested in that send me an email and I’ll see If I can arrange a private lesson.


Weekend was great! Definitely worth the money and the time. Clayton, I’ll email you some more detailed comments once I’ve had time to get my friends’ input.
