Irish Flute/Pennywhistle Workshop with Kevin Crawford

“The Rhythm and Pulse of Irish Music”
Sunday, November 24, 2013
1:30-5 pm Workshop
with dinner to follow
at the Srour home, York County

Irish flute and tin whistle players are invited to join us for an afternoon of music with the charming and very accomplished Kevin Crawford.

This workshop, entitled "The Rhythm and Pulse of Irish Music," will center mainly on breath control, phrasing and ornamentation — how understanding the pulse of the music takes the fear out of where to breathe. We will take a look at flute repertoire, and especially the tunes of County Clare and the West of Ireland. Please bring a recording device. Simple ABC notation will be available too.

Kevin visited last spring as part of The Teetotallers (with fiddler Martin Hayes and guitarist John Doyle), and a few years ago with the internationally-acclaimed Irish group Lúnasa. He was recently named "Male Musician of the Year 2013" by He's recently released a new recording, Carrying the Tune, with John Doyle accompanying him on guitar.
