June 23, 2014 - Make Music Chicago - Had great fun at the Hyde Park and West Loop appearances!



We enjoyed playing for the music teachers and students at Joan's Studio for The Performing Arts Saturday for We enjoyed playing for the music teachers and students at Joan's Studio for The Performing Arts Saturday for Make Music Chicago. Patrick Cannady took the opportunity to give a little talk whilst tuning his drones and regulators, explaining how the uilleann pipes work to an interested audience. We then played lots of reels, jigs, hornpipes, set dances and airs for them, what a great venue! #irishmusic #MakeMusicChi. (Patrick ( pictured above) before the show in a teaching room)

Next, we went to the West Loop where we played lots of tunes at the #ChicagoFrenchMarket. We arrived early to partake of the delicious food and check out Cowboy Choir, a very good vocal group specializing in Cowboy songs and early folks tunes with lots of lush harmonies!  We enjoyed playing there to a receptive crowd and will be back to visit!  Another great venue! #irishmusic #MakeMusicChi
