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.

COST: $35 for Craobh Úll Mór CCÉ members, $40 all others.  RSVP REQUIRED, no later than JANUARY 20th to ceolagusrince@gmail.com.

IMPORTANT: We need at least six participants in order to move forward with the event.

PLEASE RSVP to reserve your place! Followed by the Craobh Úll Mór CCÉ monthly session from 4:00 pm -7:00 pm , hosted by Peter Maguire.
