Flute Workshop with Peter Maguire

Craobh Úll Mór CCÉ is pleased to present a workshop featuring master flute and whistle player Peter Maguire.

Sunday, January 27th 2:00 pm -4:00 pm

Join us for a workshop with outstanding flute and tin whistle player Peter Maguire. Born and raised in Belfast and now living in Boston, Peter learned music as a boy from his accordionist father Tommy and later studied with Sligo flute legend Séamus Tansey.

Here is a YouTube clip of Peter playing in concert with guitarist Flynn Cohen:

Peter’s workshop will concentrate on style, ornamentation and tone.  Flute and whistle players would benefit most, but all melody players above the novice level are welcome.

A collector and researcher, Peter will also share his knowledge of Irish music history with us.
