Tin Whistle (Gerry Strong) and Guitar (Jean Hewson) Workshops - Sunday 21 Oct 2012

Join two of Canada's top traditional musicians from Newfoundland here at OFC for a set of conjoining workshops in tin whistle and guitar accompaniment followed by a performance (7:30 pm) at Stella Luna, our favorite gelato and fine food hang out next door! This a rare opportunity to study with two of the best.

Whistlers sign up for the Whistle Workshop with Newfoundland's Gerry Strong. This is a great opportunity to learn some unique tunes from tin whistle master Gerry Strong. Gerry will teach a couple of instrumental dance pieces from the traditional repertoire of Newfoundland. Participants should have a passing acquaintance with the tin whistle, but all levels of ability are welcome. Sunday, Oct 21, 2:30-4:30, $15 members ($20 non), WKSHP12-20.

Guitarists head to the Guitar Accompaniment Workshop with Newfoundland guitarist/singer, Jean Hewson. Jean will teach accompaniments for the tunes that Gerry will be instructing in his workshop. She will also pass along some advice and helpful tips on how to develop interesting and tasteful guitar settings for traditional tunes. Participants should have basic guitar skills.

Towards the end of the class,both groups will converge to play the tunes that they have learned, ending the session with a jam! Sunday, Oct 21, 2:30-4:30, $15 members ($20 non), WKSHP12-21.
