Two more Harmony Singing Workshop have been lined up at the Co-op in Scarriff on Sundays 29th March and 26th April from 2-5pm. All are very welcome and the cost is E20 per workshop. (Earlybird price is E15 if paid before 15th March – Workshop 1, and 12th April – Workshop 2.)
I have been invited to bring a group together from these workshops to perform at an afternoon Choir Event as part of the Mount Shannon Arts Festival on Sunday 24th May 2020. This is optional so feel free to book your place at the workshops regardless of wishing to join the concert. I will be running another workshop at the Festival prior to the concert, which will be open to new comers and serve as a rehearsal. Local choirs are also being invited to join in this Concert. Please contact Caz at: email@example.com if you’d like to find out more….

What a brilliant time I had at the annual Che do Bheatha Festival in Kilkee last weekend! My first visit and so many lovely people to meet! About 25 singers turned up to learn some 4 part harmony songs which we then performed on stage to a wonderfully appreciative audience – who I also got to join in!! Hope to return again some time soon!
What a fantastic day we had working with Craig Lees at the Celtic Ross Hotel, Roscarbery Saturday 13th July last. Such a beautiful location to come together, with some even going off to the beach swimming in the lunch break! Here is a video of one of the songs which Craig arranged shortly before coming over to us.
What I really love about the summer is the opportunities I get to bring my music out into different locations…and especially those on the coast! I just love being by the sea!
On Saturday 10th August I am returning to Castletownbere, and this time bring my Family Music Workshop along with a Harmony Singing one. Both of the workshops will take place in Castletownbere Library and are FREE! You can book your places by email at: email@example.com or by phone to: 027 70233.
The Family Music Workshop will be held from 2-3pm and is for parents and children aged between 4-10 years. This is a fun opportunity to build confidence and learn musical skills together. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all adults are expected to join in!!
The Harmony Singing Workshop will run from 4.30-6pm and is for all adults and youth who love to sing! We will learn a varied selection of harmony-filled songs, all taught with a ‘call and response’ approach, so no previous experience or music reading skills are needed to join in.
On Wednesday 24th July, I’ll be bringing two Music Workshops into the community of Youghal. This will be my first visit with my music and I’m really excited about meeting new people to share with.
From 1-2pm there will be a Family Music Workshop held in the Methodist Hall on Friar Street. This workshop is aimed at parents and children between 4-10 years old, and is designed as a fun learning opportunity for building confidence and developing musical skills together. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all adults are expected to join in with the activities! An entrance fee of E5 per person is being asked to help cover expenses.
From 4-6pm, I’ll be leading a Harmony Singing Workshop in Celtic Folk Song. This is part of the programme organised by the Youghal Creative Cultural Pop Up Shop running from 114, North Main Street over the months of July and August. Adults and young people who love to sing are welcome to come along and enjoy learning these harmony-filled songs in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. No previous experience or ability to read music is needed as I teach with a ‘call and response’ approach, making it easy for everyone to join in. This workshop is free of charge.
What a great weekend we had! Thanks to all who joined me at the Pop-Up Jazz Choir Workshop followed by performing on the street….we were great!! You can get a taste of it on this video around 5.25-7.50. Hopefully we’ll do it again next year!
