June 10th–12th, 2011

Imagine an opportunity to develop your vocal and harp playing skills among the mountains, lakes and endless Atlantic beaches of Donegal!
To coincide with the release of their new album, Voices & Harps, Moya Brennan and Cormac De Barra are holding an exclusive weekend workshop in voice and Irish harp. This will take place in Gweedore, Co. Donegal on the weekend of June 10th-12th, 2011

The workshop will be geared towards those with a keen interest in combining singing with harp playing (singers looking to perform with harp accompaniment, voice with self accompaniment, voice and vocal harmonies or harpers developing their accompaniment skills).
The workshop fee of ?275 will include all Saturday and Sunday workshop sessions plus lunch and dinner on both days. Travel and accommodation should be arranged by participants themselves but options for both will be posted on the workshop web page. Places are limited so immediate booking is advised.
Registration in Leo’s Tavern from 7.30-9pm on Friday evening will also include an informal introduction from Moya and Cormac and will be followed by a traditional session with local musicians. (Saturday morning registration will also be possible). Saturday night entertainment will be provided by Moya and Cormac themselves and the finale, in the renowned Leo’s Tavern on Sunday evening, will give participants the opportunity to perform a selection of the material from the workshop. Moya and Cormac will launch their CD in Whelan’s of Wexford street Dublin on June 15th.
