In this unique workshop, young musicians and singers across Laois are invited to learn from three of Ireland’s most esteemed Irish musicians; Pádraig Rynne on concertina, Tara Breen on fiddle and sean-nós singer and fiddle player Caoimhe Ní Fhlatharta.

Deeply immersed in the music traditions of County Clare and of the Connemara Gaeltacht, Pádraig, Tara and Caoimhe are all recognised as musicians who are at the leading edge of the living tradition, charting new musical territories and building new diverse audiences for Irish music.

Centered on creativity and with the encouragement and experience of these expert tutors, participants will:

  • review traditional Irish music frameworks and explore how these can be opened up for collaboration
  • experience the oldest and the latest contemporary approaches to vocal and melody arrangements
  • learn up to two sean-nós songs
  • incorporate and learn Irish melody approaches that work with these songs, as well as standalone pieces
  • create new arrangements for these songs
