> Harp Workshop 1 (12:00-1:30 PM) Beginner: Irish Dance Tune
> Harp Workshop 2 (2:00-3:30 PM) Intermediate: Irish Dance Tune with Rhythmic Accompaniment
This workshop for intermediate-advanced harpists focuses on rhythmically enhancing the left hand/accompaniment to Irish dance tunes. Learn a simple melody by ear (different from the dance tune in workshop 1), and then a variety of progressively rhythmic techniques to "lift" the tune through the accompaniment. Sheet music (melody only) will be provided at the end of the workshop. You are encouraged to bring a recording device, notebook etc.
> Concert at 4:30 PM, Irish Harp
Aislinn Gagliardi is a professional Irish harpist based in Chicago, and is well sought after as a performer, teacher and recording artist. Drawing from her background in Irish dance, and influenced by a diverse musical range from classical to Cape Breton, Aislinn’s distinct style shines through her music in an open and honest way. Known for her syncopated and rhythmic accompaniment, her compositions and arrangements offer a fresh perspective to the Irish music tradition.
$30 for one harp workshop, $50 for both harp workshops
(concert will be a free-will offering; suggestion donation $10/person or $25/family)
