Learn Sliabh Luachra Style Tunes from Denis Murphy & Julia Clifford's Recordings (Irish)


Sunday

12:30-1:30PM

Location: Julia Clifford Room 34

Instructor: Laurel Martin (fiddle)

Style: Irish

The brother and sister duo Julia Clifford and Denis Murphy learned their fiddle music from the great master of Sliabh Luachra style fiddling, Padraig O’Keeffe. They recorded a duet album in 1969 called “The Star Above the Garter”, which has become a classic. In this workshop we will learn a tune or two from this historic recording and will explore ways we can use the bow to bring that special Sliabh Luachra flavor to polkas, slides, jigs and reels. Bonus: you'll actually know how to pronounce "Sliabh Luachra."
