WiseWood Folk Steady Speed Session: Popular Irish Tunes

An hour of Irish session tunes, in the company of Kitty Greenwood & Garry Wiseman
Join us to play a selection of well-known: jigs, reels, hornpipes, slow airs & polkas. We provide pdf sheet music plus steady speed audio - everything you need to learn all the melodies in advance.
On the night, we’ll play each tune slowly, then a few times through at a faster tempo. Whatever your level, accurate, steady-speed performance reaps huge musical rewards, allowing you to improve your technical skills and draw out the unique personality of each tune.

We use super-fast internet and a professional quality sound-system so that you will get the best possible experience on Zoom. Participants will be muted while playing - so have no fears, your mistakes won’t be heard by the rest of the group!

Start time 19:30 UTC (8.30 pm in UK)
Fee £6 or £20 for 4 (15th Oct, 12th Nov, 26th Nov, 10th Dec) A link to the pdfs and audio recordings of our Irish tune library will be emailed to you when you book.
or email folkfiddleteacher@gmail.com for other payment options.
