For Children - Irish Music Session

Irish SessionFor 10 years I ran a monthly children's Irish music session but discontinued them for lack of attendance. I still run a few a year during school holidays. If you would like to be informed of these write me at mail@karenashbrook.com. If I hear from enough interested folks I will start them up again once a month on Tuesday nights.

Also check out my Irish Music and Culture Summer camps in Silver Spring, MD - the Sligo Creek Hedge School. See my listings below for opportunities to go play in the DC/Baltimore area.
