Scéala an tSamhraidh

Greetings! Welcome to my website! I’m happy to say that things are opening up here again in Minnesota, vaccinations are going well and the return of sessions is on the horizon! I continue to enjoy my teaching on line with the Center for Irish Music and look forward to seeing some of my students in person in July and August. The Minnesota Irish Music Weekend will be happening in mid-June, and, as well as wonderful virtual online guests from Ireland, there will be a live concert at the Celtic Junction in St. Paul — I’ll get to take part in a “Martin McHugh and Friends” set with Laura MacKenzie and Mary Vanorny — that will be a lot of fun! In July I’ll be teaching on line for two Swannanoa Gathering weeks — Traditional Song and Celtic Week — followed by some virtual workshops for MAD Week, run by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in Washington, DC. Onward and upward!
