July 25 & 26
This is the culminating class in the Irish Fiddle program at the Old Town School. Designed to be taken repeatedly, this is where you hone your expanding repertoire, adding set dances, airs, and O'Carolan compositions to the polkas, slides, jigs, hornpipes, and reels you've been learning. We also collaborate with dancers and other musicians when the opportunity arises, attend pub sessions regularly, and mix and mingle with the rest of the Chicago Irish music community as well as special musical guests.
Fiddle 4 Introduction to Irish. No substitution for that prerequisite.
Bring a recording device.
Fiddles are available for rent or purchase at the Old Town School Music Stores.
