Paddy O’Brien - Community Residencies

http://www.paddyobrien.net/residencies/

Button accordion master musician Paddy O’Brien is now offering multi-day residencies, expanded master classes along with his usual workshops and house concerts.

Paddy is most interested in working with fellow traditional musicians on interpretation—exploring what gives music from West Clare a different flavor from the music of Donegal, for example—and sharing some of the secret notes that impart that flavor, or blas.

A residency could range from 2-5 days in length, and be sponsored by a local session group or Irish music or cultural organization. Costs are negotiable. Interested community groups should contact Paddy by phone or email (+1 651-698-2258 or paddyobrien@qwest.net) to chat about what they have in mind.
