Droichead are delighted to announce the return of their Slow Sessions with Brendan McCreanor ONLINE beginning on Sat 13 Feb at 2pm. The sessions will take place twice monthly, capacity is limited so early booking is advised. Visit the website to find out how to book your ticket.
These sessions are for players of any instrument and at any level. A selection of easy and well known session tunes will be played slowly so that people in the early stages of their playing, or those coming back to playing music, have the opportunity to play together in a friendly, supportive and informal context. More experienced players who wish to refine their techniques and extend their repertoire at a slower pace are also very welcome.
Participants will learn a selection of popular session tunes, including a couple of local ones from Co. Louth and well known tunes from across the country. Through engagement with the slow session, participants will develop their repertoire to include jigs, reels, slides, polkas and hornpipes, and will learn about the timing of the different styles and a little about the history and origins of the tunes.
