Learn some tunes and techniques that will bring authenticity to your Irish fiddling!
Jigs and slides, reels and hornpipes, polkas, waltzes and slow airs. These are all types of tunes found in Irish traditional music, but how can a fiddler make them sound authentic?
Saskia is an All Britain and North American Champion of Irish fiddle and Slow Airs, and with her guidance, you will explore the rhythms, ornamentation and bowing to plant your tune playing firmly in Ireland. Sheet music and recordings will be sent out in advance of tunes to focus on.
