GAELIC STORM BRINGS INAUGURAL ‘RAG AND BONE WORKSHOP’
TO FULL MOON RESORT JULY 29-AUGUST 2,
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,
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
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.
