Sharing the Tradition:
An Interactive Online Workshop
Do you know your jigs from your reels, your slides from your polkas? If you’ve always wanted to improve your knowledge of traditional Irish music, a four-week series of interactive online workshops starting on Tuesday, May 11th, could be just the thing for you.
These workshops are hosted by Siamsa Tíre, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland, and facilitated by Nicky McAuliffe, a musician who has performed, toured, and taught music with the theatre for over 50 years.
Nicky is respected the world over for his in-depth knowledge of Ireland’s musical heritage. So respected, in fact, that he and his wife Anne were presented with TG4’s Gradam Ceoil Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019.
His workshops are aimed at experienced musicians over the age of 16. Over the course of four weeks, Nicky will teach them traditional tunes while also sharing his insights into the tunes’ history, where they come from, and how they were named.
