By request of the Organisers of the event and C.C.E, I have been requested to and have the great honor of performing in the closing ceremony of the All Ireland music competition being held in Derry/Londonderry, North Ireland. I will be repersenting the traditional musicians of the United States and have been asked to play both fife (for North Ireland) and flute (for the Republic of Ireland). The musical program is going to feature a wide cast of fantastic musicians and will show how traditional Irish music has travelled the globe. This is the first time the event is being held in North Ireland and all stops are being pulled out! The program is being broadcast on RTE and across Great Britian and promises to be a fantastic show.
In conjunction with the world famous resort community of Arosa, Switzerland and their "MUSIK-KURSWOCHEN" (music course week), I will be teaching a week long series of classes on Irish flute and tin whistle music. The program will take place JULY 31 - AUGUST 4, 2017. I will be posting information and videos about the event very soon!!! Imagine, learning about traditional Irish music high in the Swiss Alps, staying in a beautiful hotel called "Hotel Hohe Promenade" a 3 star hotel with AMAZING food and service...
