Aidan Connolly's Bowing Class

The wonderfully talented Aidan Connolly gave us a bowing masterclass on 08.08.2020 and kindly agreed to sharing it on the website for those who couldn't make it along on the day. Aidan gave us many tips and options for practicing bowing for polkas and jigs. Aidan is available for private lessons and can be contacted at

This website is freely available to the public as the mission is to preserve and promote Irish music, and Sliabh Luachra music in particular. Many students do not work yet, and cannot afford to pay for lessons regularly. I hope this site will help them. If you can afford it and you would like to support the project, and the upkeep of the website, then your patronage is very welcome.
