Meet the Master - Paddy Keenan Whistle and Piping Workshop

Irish Music Ottawa offers an opportunity for musicians of ALL levels of proficiency on the Irish tin whistle, including low whistles, and/or uilleann pipes, to meet and learn from Paddy Keenan. 

I've heard that you should never meet your heros, as you'll only be disappointed. Come meet Paddy Keenan in person and find out why that doesn't apply to him. You will not be disappointed!

This workshop is offered on the day after the Paddy Keenan concert (26 Nov) at the organiser's house (Nepean, 27 Nov). Based on the workshop Paddy gave in 2008, the atmosphere is very relaxed and it was a lot of fun. The people at the last workshop really enjoyed themselves as Paddy is tremendously supportive and respectful of musicians at ALL levels. He is simply one of the most genuine guys you will ever meet. He will work with you at your level.

The cost for the workshop is $30 for 2-3 hrs (we're casual!) with Paddy Keenan, his and your instruments! Limited to FIRST TEN registrants. Target start time is 2pm. Location details etc will be confirmed with registrants in advance.  Your registration includes light refreshments and a memorable experience with the living legend!

Registration: Via, or by cash at the concert. 
Cash payment on the same day of the workshop has to be arranged in advance.
