Learn to Play Puirt à Beul (Cheerful Gaelic "Mouth Music"):


Friday

11:00AM-12:00PM

Location: R345

Instructor: MCNALLY[F]

Style: Cape Breton Scottish

The genre, found in Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton, involves a single performer singing lighthearted lyrics. In puirt à beul, the rhythm and sound of the song often have more importance than the depth or even sense of the lyrics, so it's fun to move them onto the fiddle. We'll learn a few super catchy and accessible tunes from this Gaelic song tradition.
