About Galician Fiddling:
Once considered a part of the Celtic tradition, now understood as distinct, the music of the Spanish region of Galicia is well-loved and is now part of the repertoire of Irish and Scottish musicians all over the world. Dip your toes into the well of this living fiddle tradition by learning a popular traditional Muiñeira and a modern waltz that you’ll be able to play at sessions from Santiago de Compostela to Dublin.
Enion has been traveling to Spain to perform, teach, and learn in Galicia since 2015, and will share their interesting history of fiddling and traditional music in addition to these great tunes and how to give them the appropriate Spanish flavor. Because this is a virtual lesson, Enion regrets that we will not be able to eat pulpo and drink Estrella Galicia after the session.

By 16 she had taught herself to compose impromptu melodies in styles from classical sonatas to East Indian ragas and jazz standards. Enion attended Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD, working towards a viola performance degree, while also studying english at Johns Hopkins. Read More About Enion→
