Event & Lessons with Irish Fiddler Gerry O'Connor

Irish Fiddle & Master Musician Gerry O'Connor is once again visiting Winnipeg and will be giving a Lecture/Concert at the Irish Club on Thursday evening March 14th followed by a Session.  Cover charge is $10 for IAM & Comhaltas members & $15 for non-members.

This is a WONDERFUL & RARE opportunity for us in Winnipeg, to listen to and learn from one of Ireland's greatest living Irish Musicians....and to play along with him in an Irish Session!!! He is only in town and available for Thursday night and Friday before 3pm - so we have to make the most of his short time here. Please mark the date on your calendars!!!! See attached for info on Gerry.

Gerry will be available Friday between 11am and 3pm at the Irish Club to give private lessons $75/hour and group lessons $20/hour per person with minimum of 5 students per group. Non-fiddlers are encouraged to sign up for a mixed instruments group lesson on Irish style and interpretation.

Please contact me by replying to this ASAP if you are interested in taking a private or group fiddle lesson or mixed-instruments group lesson.

Thank you,      Susan    www.HammersMusic.com


Gerry O’Connor comes from Dundalk, and was taught by his mother, Rose who was a descendant of three generations of fiddle players. With a focus on his local music of Oriel, he is known world-wide as a soloist and as a founder band member of Lá Lugh, Skylark and Oirialla. His playing is noted for its vibrancy and pulsating rhythm which he attributes to his early years of step-dancing and to the influence of John Joe Gardiner with whom he played in the inaugural Comhaltas Seisiún series in the early 1970s. He has recorded 14 albums with his first solo album Journeyman hailed as a landmark album of Irish fiddle music, and has performed with all of the leading performers of the Irish music world including members of the Chieftains, Boys of the Lough, Planxty, De Dannan and Bothy Band. Gerry has published a book of Cathal McConnell's songs and is launching a tunebook this week featuring dance music of Oriel recorded at the turn of the 20th century. Gerry is also highly regarded as a violin-maker and music producer, and is in constant demand as a music tutor.
