Gaelic Storm's 'Rag And Bone Workshop' in NY's Catskill Mountains


Celtic-rock group Gaelic Storm are set to host their first-ever Rag and Bone Workshop July 29-August 2 at Full Moon Resort in the heart of the "Forever Wild" Catskill Forest Preserve, just one half hour west of Woodstock, New York. Through four days of camping, classes, music and stories, Gaelic Storm’s Rag and Bone Workshop will explore the band’s Celtic influences, the instruments that shape their sound, and more.

Classes and clinics will be taught by the current members of Gaelic Storm--frontman Patrick Murphy, guitarist-vocalist Steve Twigger, percussionist Ryan Lacey, piper Pete Purvis and fiddle player Kiana Weber--as well as Gaelic Storm’s former fiddler Jessie Burns.

Gaelic Storm’s live shows have always had the familiar communal and interactive feel of a neighborhood pub. The Rag and Bone Workshop takes that experience to the most personal level, as each individual band member will teach group classes in their respective areas of expertise – acoustic guitar, fiddle/violin, pipes and whistle, and percussion/drum classes (including bodhran and spoons), as well as songwriting classes. Private lessons will also be available. Attendees of the songwriting class will write with the band, and the performance on the final evening will feature the campers as the headliners performing songs penned at the workshop with Gaelic Storm as the “house band.”

Gaelic Storm will also perform two official shows--a full band set and their “Old Songs and Old Stories” storyteller set. And, in the spirit of celebration, there will be at least one formal whiskey tasting (for those who are of age), and jam sessions with band members each night…sometimes into the morning.

Gaelic Storm’s Rag and Bone Workshop offers a variety of pricing options, based on the variety of available accommodations. Packages are on sale now at: and start at just $795, including lodging, access to all gourmet meals, performances, and camp activities. Rag and Bone Workshop is open to music lovers of all ages – musicians of all skill levels and non-musicians alike.
