2018 Community Music Workshop and Gathering with Alasdair Fraser
- Explore playing music from the Celtic lands (and beyond!) in a large ensemble, with an emphasis on arrangement ideas and traditional flavors.
- Alasdair will teach tunes by ear. We'll look at elements of language and dance and how to create a medley of tunes to form a larger piece of music.
- For players of all ages on a wide range of instruments, including fiddles, cellos, guitars, bass, woodwinds, harp, keyboards, etc. Children should be accompanied by a supervising adult.
- Instruction is geared toward intermediate to advanced musicians, though enthusiasts of all levels are welcome.
- Doors will open at 9:30 am for registration and coffee/tea. We'll take a break for lunch (provided). Workshop concludes at 4:30, followed by a pizza dinner (approx 5:00 pm).  The Ceilidh Dance Party begins at 6:30.

The evening event is free to workshop participants. Community members, family and friends are welcome to attend; a contribution of $10 or 2 dozen hors doeurves or dessert items for the snack table would be greatly appreciated.
