This class will be conducted online via Zoom, a widely used and free application that works well for online learning. Upon registration, you will receive a link and instructions for downloading the program. Laptop, desk computer, or tablet with video and audio ability is required.


Mairéad shares tunes and tales from County Donegal, home to one of the richest traditions of fiddle playing in Ireland and the world over. Budding fiddlers will take in tunes by ear in small phrases, and learn history, context, technique, and style through practice of bowing, ornamentation and tone. Intermediate to advanced students welcome.
