Music of Ireland & Puerto Rico

$202 ($192 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Two small islands that face heartache by producing hope through song and dance. Clawhammer banjo is the perfect rhythmic messenger with its backbeat African heartbeat, and lilting and uplifting melodic potential. Michael has an Irish passport and cousins all over Ireland, as well as a deep and enduring affection for the music and people of Puerto Rico. Celebrate these cultures in this class.


Intermediate skills required. Equivalent to Clawhammer Banjo 3.
