Chris Langan Summer Session, 2022
WE ARE BACK!
After an overdue hiatus, the Chris Langan Traditional Irish Music Festival is back with a Summer Session. Its time to gather again in person and celebrate with tunes, stories and learning.
The Langan Summer Session (and workshops) will take place June 25th at Noonan's pub on the Danforth. We will be hosting fiddler John Dahms, who will be doing two workshops. Pipe Maker Joe Kennedy will join us in the morning to do a workshop on reeds and offer tips and tricks for pipers. There will be a Piper's Circle and then the day will be rounded out with a classic Langan Open Session.
Workshop Spaces are extremely limited, so please email email@example.com to reserve a spot.
