I had an amazing time last week in Limerick at the World Academy of Music and Dance working with the trad students on the BA Irish music and dance degree course. The brief was to put together 4 sets of music which would be performed at a big concert in April. I supplied in advance the tunes and we started from scratch with the arrangements when I arrived.
I had a few ideas in mind but not too many. I decided to trust my ears and experience and see what happened! Always when I’ve worked in Limerick I’m amazed by the students and this time was no different. They (there were 70 of them…) were so quick and so musical and lots of fun to work with. Anyway below is our music! Enjoy!
