Beginning Penny Whistle

Saturday, April 22, 2017 - 4:00pm
Uncle Woodrow's Workshop Tent
Jim O'Connor

Whether you’d like to provide an additional melody instrument for your local jam or simply want to take on a rewarding challenge, the Penny Whistle Workshop is the place to be.

Multi-instrumentalist Jim O’Connor will demonstrate beautiful tunes on various whistles collected on travels to Ireland, and will teach the basics of penny whistle playing.

A former founding member of the Shoal Creek Bluegrass band, Jim has spent the past 15 years with the popular trio, Mulligan Stew, playing Irish and old-time music. His contributions include mandolin, guitar, tin whistle and vocals. Bring along a “Key of D” penny whistle for active participation in the class, or just come and listen.

Vintage Music, located on Dahlonega’s Historic Square, will have a supply of D whistles on hand for those who would like to stop by and purchase one. (Telephone: 706-864-2682)
