About the Event

Workshop Details: Different Grooves for Different Tunes: Finding the right tempo to make the tune come alive Have you ever been awestruck to slow down a reel and find out just how much better it sounds? Or maybe there's a tune you played in a session once and it was just a few clicks faster and suddenly a whole other world of excitement? One of the easiest ways to rediscover a tune is to change the tempo. This is something that Alan and I have spent a lot of time thinking about... down to the BPM for each track on our album! In this workshop we will take some familiar tunes and talk about locking into the right groove and also how the same tune can be "felt" with various time-feels. All instruments.

Andrew Finn Magill is a Fulbright fellow, North Carolina Arts Council Fellow, and award-winning composer. He has been featured on MTV, TEDx, Avianca in-flight entertainment and multiple times on NPR's The Thistle & Shamrock. His 2016 album Roots (featuring Cillian Vallely of Lúnasa and John Doyle) debuted at number #46 on the folk DJ charts and since then, he has toured internationally and headlined several Irish festivals.

Scottish guitar & bouzouki-player Alan Murray is one of the most in-demand accompanists in Irish music and has performed at Denmark’s Tønder FestivalMilwaukee Irish Fest and Celtic Connections. Alan has shared the stage with such artists as Karan CaseyNiall and Cillian VallelyEileen Ivers and Scotland’s Battlefield Band. In 2020, the two musicians released their debut album "Murray & Magill" exclusively on Bandcamp.
