More About CES Workshop: Folk and Traditional Irish Singing Pedagogy

CES at Frostburg State University presents a free workshop as part of the annual Appalachian Festival.

Famed Irish musician Karan Casey invites community members of all ages and levels of singing to join her during the Appalachian Festival. In the hour-long workshop, songs will be “teased out,” as participants listen, learn and explore together. Orality, ornamentation and voice placement, along with collecting and sourcing songs, will be discussed.

“I love songs and would love for people to experience the joy of singing,” says Casey. “Singing keeps me steady and safe. Aengus, the god of love, was reputed to blow out his kisses into the air where they then changed into birds and flew around his head protecting him! I feel the same thing happens with songs, they are a balm and a comfort to me and hopefully, by extension, to the people listening or singing along.”

This event, which is supported by Culture Ireland, is presented as part of the Frostburg Appalachian Festival.
