By popular demand, I've created a special ZOOM workshop for fiddlers who have recently become interested in playing Irish Traditional tunes. Monday Dec. 7th at 6:00pm ET I'll lead a combined workshop and slow session featuring a playlist of ten classic tunes in ten different types/styles, explaining the unique characteristics of each type (and how to identify them) along the way. I'll also explain the finer details of session etiquette, offer some helpful hints on learning tunes by ear, and take questions throughout. Participants will also receive music sheets for all tunes and more! Fee is only $15. Contact me at email@example.com to sign up for this Zoom workshop I've tailored specifically for everyone who's "NEW TO TRAD"!

1. John Ryan's Polka (Irish POLKA in D)
2. Swallowtail Jig (Irish JIG in Em)
3. Road to Lisdoonvarna (Irish SLIDE in Em)
