“In this workshop, we’ll discuss and learn about a variety of ideas that came from different heritages and places around the globe, adding tasteful flavours and colours to the Celtic guitar approach.
From Greece and the Mediterranean, African and Latin Music, Brazilian Genres and even Modern ideas that Rock, Folk and Metal delivers, we’ll taste and experience the results inside some of the traditional repertoire.”
