I really appreciated the welcoming tone of the retreat. It is a very safe place for beginners to be, and all of us have been and will again be beginners on new instruments. This came through in the attitudes of the instructors, organizers, session leaders. It seems to me that this is the core, the soul of this retreat.
It was my first retreat and I thought the whole weekend was absolutely fabulous. I had sort of lost my connection to Irish music and I came away from the weekend refreshed and re-energized and very present to why I love this music so much.
