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
