BreizhEire is very happy to announce its first event in Belfast, with musicians from France and the west of Ireland!
The day will start with two high-quality workshops in Madden’s Bar: percussions and accordion.
Participants will have a unique opportunity to learn from percussionist Szymon Miśniak (member of Bal Kuzest currently touring with Sharon Shannon) and discover and practice Breton rythms. Bring a bodhrán or other drum, all levels welcome.
Eric Cabedoce will introduce Breton tunes, rythms and techniques. Button boxes, concertinas and all levels welcome. http://www.myspace.com/443403953
Pre-booking is advised for both workshops by contacting BreizhEire: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will then be expecting dancers and non-dancers alike for an afternoon of dance to the sound of Breton instruments (flute, accordion, clarinet, bagpipe and bombard) in An Droichead. No need to know the dances, come and learn with us while having fun!
An Droichead doesn’t have a bar, but you can bring your own drinks.
