Dáithí Sproule

Cúpla focal ó Dháithí!

Welcome to my website! I hope you are all keeping well! Unfortunately, due to various covid issues, our October-November Altan tour has been cancelled — but is being re-scheduled for autumn 2022. On the positive side, this leaves me more time for my teaching at the wonderful Center for Irish Music in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Many of the classes and lessons are on line nowadays, so you should check it out, wherever you live — at www.centerforirishmusic.org. We have a great roster of instructors for all the instruments used in traditional Irish music as well as for song — and interesting background classes. In addition to teaching guitar and traditional song in Irish and English, I have led courses on Early Ireland, Irish language, mythology and Irish poetry in translation from the earliest times till the present — keeping the grey cells working!
