Bill Whelan teaches at Sore Fingers 2015

The FOAOTMAD news blog includes the following information on the rapidly approaching 20th Sore Fingers Week, Europe's premier instruction camp in the bluegrass and old-time instruments.

The camp (6-10 Apr. 2015) is now close to capacity, with just a few tent spaces left. Additional classes for old-time fiddle and banjo have been recently added to the schedule: the third course for fiddle is being taught by Rachel Eddy (USA) and the second course for banjo by our own Bill Whelan (photo), the doyen of clawhammer banjo and old-time music in this island.

Both courses are filling up quickly; so for anyone still wanting to book a place, the final deadline is 12 March 2015. There is no need to call or e-mail; the completed booking form can be sent in, preferably as an e-mail attachment, to this address. No booking fees will be deducted till your place has been confirmed.
