Tom Morley's Oct. Zoom Fiddle Workshop, Play Along Session

Saturday, October 3, 2020

Greetings Fiddle Hangout Friends~
I'm presenting two Zoom events during the two weeks I'm "taking off" from my Monday Play Along Irish Sessions on Facebook.
First up – An Irish & Old-Time Fiddle Workshop via Zoom this coming Tuesday, Oct. 6th at 3pm ET/2pm CT. I'll teach several tunes – first, the Old-Time classic "Sail Away Ladies" (in three versions & two keys!) and then we'll "sail away" to Ireland for an Irish trad tune or two. Plus I'll demonstrate some Old-Time fiddling techniques and Irish ornaments & bowing, and take questions. Contact me by email at now to reserve your spot  for a very low $15 fee. I'll send your invitation and sheet music to the tunes in advance.
After this workshop, I'll return on Zoom for my second Irish Trad Session Zoom Style on Monday, Oct. 12th at 6pm ET/5pm CT (the same time I usually go live on Facebook). I'll provide a playlist as usual but we'll play face-to-face for a change. Also, I'll "hand the mic" over to any and all willing participants to lead a tune while I mute myself. All in all, a nice change from my Facebook sessions! (I'm asking for only a $5 donation to attend this session.)
Sign up for one or both zoom events now by simply responding to this email (or messaging me on Facebook). I will send another reminder later about the Oct. 12th event.
At each Zoom event, I'll have a drawing and one lucky winner will receive a free Zoom fiddle lesson with me at their convenience! I hope all my fiddling friends & fans will join me for this fun workshop!

D'Addario Artist Tom Morley’s career spans over thirty years and a host of genres. He’s played Celtic, Bluegrass, classical, swing, Americana, and Country Honky-Tonk, earning an RIAA Certified Gold Record award for his work with “new traditionalist” country artist John Anderson. Classically trained with a degree in music education, Tom has followed his passion for Irish Traditional Music for the past two decades as a soloist and with various groups, including Mithril (an Alabama-based Celtic/World music quartet that released seven albums and performed concerts, including as guest artists with symphonies, across the US) and the Irish Folk trio Stringer’s Ridge, his newest project since moving to Chattanooga, TN in 2017. He has made multiple trips to Ireland, learning from and playing alongside master musicians of the genre, including Manus McGuire, Liz Carroll, Frankie Gavin, Maurice Lennon, Charlie Piggott, John Whelan and Thomas Walsh. He’s also opened for We Banjo 3, Solas, and the Brock McGuire Band and performed with Cherish The Ladies. Tom teaches privately and has been on the faculty of fiddle workshops and string camps around the US, including the original O’Connor Method Camps, American Music Camp Maine, Strings Without Boundaries (including the 2020 online version), Fiddle Hell Gathering, SCOR Adult String Camp Atlanta, Allegheny Mountain Virginia String Project and for the world-renown John C. Campbell Folk School. He is the first International affiliate for the Online Irish Fiddle Certification Program for the Leinster School of Music and Drama at Griffith College Dublin. He’s had an online presence through his regular contributions to iFiddle e-magazine, and the library of video lessons he created for the online publication between 2014-2019 is now available on his YouTube channel as well. You'll find him live streaming most every Monday night on his personal Facebook page, where he's been leading a Play Along Irish Session since March 2020 because of COVID-19. Tom is the author of several popular fiddle instructional books (distributed through Shar Music), including "Learn to Play Irish Trad Fiddle" and the "Fiddle Club Favorites for Strings" series, a collection of folk and fiddle tunes for beginning players, available for violin, viola, cello, and mandolin.
