Roscommon Arts Centre has enlisted the expertise of professional musicians Alan Kelly and Steph Germia to help establish “R Time” – Roscommon traditional Irish Music Ensemble.
Roscommon Arts Centre are looking for 20 young people aged 12 – 19, who are already somewhat experienced traditional musicians and who would be interested in meeting and working with like-minded youngsters. During a six week free workshop programme, Alan and Steph will work with participants, focusing on ensemble playing, composition, arrangement and both the practical and creative sides to group playing as musicians lean to play together as part of “R Time”.
The workshops offer a fantastic opportunity to young Roscommon players to meet up and work together, establish musical friendships and learn some tricks of the trade from those who know!
Limited spaces are still available, so why not contact the Roscommon Arts Centre box office on 0906 625824 for registration details. Workshops commence tomorrow, Saturday October 8th, from 1pm – 4pm.
