Traditional Irish Singing
with Mai Hernon

Wednesday, December 7th | 7 PM – 9:30 PM

"There is a lovely mellow warm quality to her singing that brings new life to the older songs. Her interpretation...is a revelation." - Irish Music Magazine

If you ever wanted to sing a traditional Irish song, but felt you did not have the right material, the right confidence, or the right technique...this class is for you!

Irish Arts Center is happy to welcome back traditional singer Mai Hernon for another great master class. From Sligo, Mai has released four critically acclaimed albums and has taught singing for over 20 years. She has conducted classes throughout Ireland, as well as England’s Bath Folk Festival, Catskills Irish Arts Week, Dublin Ohio Irish festival, Dayton Celtic Festival and many more in the U.S. She has performed and toured with traditional bands including Beeswing and Trí Scéalta, and with her duet Celtic Font. Mai will conduct a special master class at IAC focusing on the air and the lyrics of songs from different areas of Ireland, the physical aspects of singing such as ornamentation, phrasing, and projection, as well as the origins, history, meaning, and significance of the songs.

All levels of singing experience are welcome—from beginners exploring this genre, to accomplished singers looking to polish their skills or rekindle their love of traditional singing.
