An Afternoon of Celtic Music Workshops
Clairbourn School, San Gabriel
San Gabriel, CA
Share this event:

The Scottish Fiddlers of Los Angeles will host an afternoon of workshops with some of the members of this year's Spring Concert headliners, The Syncopaths.

At 12:30 p.m., Christa Burch will give a one-hour workshop in Celtic song.  Cost $15.

"Christa has a warm, versatile voice. Her singing commands the listener's attention, but in a gentle, direct, and natural way... You feel as if she's looking you in the eye and singing straight to you. With each song, she's telling a precise story, a story she wants you to pay attention to and understand the nuances of. And as you listen, you do understand... the complex emotions and associations that make the stories real and relevant., FolkWorks Magazine


Also at 12:30 p.m., Jeffrey Spero will give a one-hour workshop on chording/rhythm options in accompanying Celtic music (open to any instrument commonly doing accompaniment, such as keyboards, guitar, mandolin, cello, bass...even fiddle).  Cost $15.


Jeffrey has been playing piano and singing since he was five years old. At a young age he discovered an affinity for popular music and developed his style emulating musicians like James Taylor, Elton John, and Bruce Hornsby. In his 30s, he brought his rhythmic style to American and Celtic folk and dance music and now travels around the country playing dances, concerts and festivals with bands such as Syncopaths and Rhythm Raptors.


Ryan McKasson will give a two-hour Celtic fiddle workshop from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Tunes will be taught by ear so attendees should have some experience with that. The workshop is open to fiddles and other acoustic melody instruments one finds in traditional folk music settings.   Cost $20.


The bow drives across the strings, thick and throaty, creating a pulsing sound that feels more of muscle than tendon...a compositional sophistication that is cinematic, transporting, and tantalizingly modern,  The Boston Globe.

Hope to see you there!
