"The Art of Tradition" Music Workshop

On Thursday 31st of January, our 5th and 6th year Music students enjoyed a traditional Irish Music workshop called “The Art of a Tradition”, led by world renowned musicians Dr. Martin Tourish and Cormac de Barra.  Martin is an accordion player with the world famous Irish group, Altan, while Cormac is a harpist who regularly performs all over the world with musicians such as Moya Brennan and Clannad.  Tracing the history of traditional Irish Music, the students listened to examples of ornamentation and dance tunes played by the duo. After the workshop, some of our students were lucky enough to play a few tunes too!
