November 27, 2010 - Workshops with Jesse Smith

Jesse Smith Taught Tunes From "The Ewe With The Crooked Horn."

Fiddler Jesse Smith taught a day of Irish Traditional Music Workshops to musicians of all skill levels on all instruments. 
The workshop* focused on the new CD, described by Jesse as "old music from manuscript and legendary players as interpreted by Smith, Gannon and Blake."  In the workshops Jesse also talked about some of his favourite old players and some great books. 
We were very fortunate to have this opportunity to learn from a great player and teacher in an intimate setting.

Jesse taught the following tunes and handed out copies of sheet music to participants:
(Tracks: 1, 10, and 12). Purchase the CD here or on iTunes
1. McGreevy's and The Silvermines (Reels)
10. Mouse in the Cupboard and Lark on the Strand (Jigs)
12. The Ewe with the Crooked Horn and Pol Ha'Penny (Hornpipes) 

Thanks to all who attended the Baltimore concert and CD release on Wednesday, October 27th, 2010.
