“Irish musical culture, it turns out, involves something more than a familiarity with the greatest hits of the Pogues. Bill Ochs leads this workshop examining three centuries of Irish music.”
– Time Out New York
"A central figure in the renaissance of the tin whistle"
- NPR's All Things Considered

We all love jigs and reels! But the Irish music repertoire extends far beyond these popular genres. Piper and music collector Bill Ochs will lead Beyond Jigs and Reels, a workshop devoted to Irish music that you are not likely to hear in your local pub.

Drawing on his private collection that spans three hundred years of written music and over a century of recordings, Ochs will teach planxties and music of the harpers, clan marches, pieces, highlands, mazurkas, barn dances, long dances, quadrilles, slow airs, and more. Come find out what you've been missing and add this great music to your repertoire!

The workshop is for intermediate level (and above) players of ALL instruments. Transcriptions of tunes will be provided. Students are also encouraged to bring a recording device.

Pipers please note that the workshop will be held in the IAC's Donaghy Theater which has a limited number of seats without arms. So please register early.
