News from Burren Fiddle Holidays, Dec 2023

Hello! Season’s greetings from Burren Fiddle Holidays.

What a year it’s been. My last post mentioned moving location, and I am now settled in – I didn’t go far, I’m right in the heart of Corofin! It’s such a beautiful area with lots of sight-seeing options, history and a big variety of music sessions between the village and the surrounding areas.

For fiddle holidays there are some changes to the accommodation options. Following on from my last post, I still have a collaboration with my fellow fiddle-player and friend near to Kilfenora. I have a new self-catering collaboration also with Des at The Red Gates, a beautiful place just 5 minutes from Corofin. If you’re interested in a tuition and accommodation package please get in touch, and I’ll make sure our availability matches up. My last post gives an idea of my availability for fiddle weeks, weekends and one-off classes, and how to contact me – this will be similar for 2024. I’ll paste a link to The Red Gates below:

Teaching this year has been great as ever and really rewarding. It’s been such a benefit for my own playing as well; I learn so much when students ask me questions; when I need to demonstrate something; when I get tune requests. Thank you to all my students this year for your enthusiasm and attitude to learning, and to those who came for holidays and one-off classes.

The online recital this year didn’t quite squeeze in before Christmas, so it’s in the diary for the end of January to brighten up this winter month.

Best Wishes for the New Year, and I’ll see you in 2024,
