Traditional Irish Music
I am new to TradConnect. So new. In fact, I only learned about this awesome site this morning. I am a university student based in New York City. I have been playing Irish tin whistle for about a year. I am nowhere near to advanced, but I have discovered a love and passion for Irish traditional music. I am eager to share it with people, especially with New York City.
New York City has a huge Irish musician community (maybe not as strong as Boston, but we won't open up that can of worms). Yet it is really difficult to find that life of Irish music that we all know exists in New York without extra help. I have been playing around with the idea of creating a blog with a dual purpose: 1) to chronicle the life of a budding Irish musician (namely myself) as she discovers all the resources and technicalities in Irish music (particularly to the entertainment of newbies to the genre); and 2) to chronicle the life of Irish music in NYC for those of us who feel lost in the melée of the City and just want to find a homey session to attend each week. I started just such a blog earlier this week on tumblr. http://www.studentstrad.tumblr.com. Follow me if you're interested. However, now that I have discovered this site, I hope to connect with other Irish musicians throughout NYC and maybe start a NYC group here on TradConnect. If any of you New Yorkers, either native or adopted, want to connect with me, I would love to explore the world of Irish music throughout the City with everyone. Hopefully, we can set up TradConnect sessions within sessions throughout the City.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to connecting with everyone, and hopefully making sense of this crazy and disjointed world of Irish music in NYC.
