IAANJ SESSION 8/17
Our August 17th session at 8:00PM, will have Harp Player, Marta Cook, as guest host!
This is NOT, as some have heard rumors about, a Harp session, it is our regular session with all the usual flute, fiddles, whistles, accordions, bodhrans etc! We may have an extra harp or two in the session, but it is session as usual! Also… we will have a little harp “Swap & Shop” during the session. Some people have harps for sale or trade. If you have one to sell or are interested in buying or trading, bring it along.
The Session will start at 8:00PM. All level players welcome.
Dancers, listeners and players of all levels welcome!
Free refreshments. Tea, Coffee, BYOB, and feel free to bring any finger foods or snacks you like for the refreshment table. The more the merrier!
IAANJ is located at 352 Richard Mine Rd. Rockaway Tnsp. NJ No admission charge to listen at the session.
Prior to the session,if we can get enough people, MARTA COOK, would like to give a workshop. In fact it will be two workshops. (email firstname.lastname@example.org for full details). One for beginners from 5:00-6:20, and then for intermediate/advanced from 6:30 – 7:50. The cost will be $25 per person. We need to know by Saturday noon, if you would like to do this, so we can plan. So please let me know ASAP. If you don’t know her, here is some video:
