2021 Celtic Music Ensemble Extravaganza
Friday, March 05, 2021

fairy 6Our fabulous 1st VP and director of Events, Gracie Sprout,  has agreed to edit a harp-ensemble Celtic Extravaganza video, in honor of St. Patrick’s day, since we can’t have our normal Celtic Extravaganza in person. If you haven’t seen the wonderful video Gracie edited of our members playing holiday tunes in December 2020, see it on YouTube here.

This year we’ll do perform two songs, “Danny Boy” and “Galway Piper” (aka "The Rakes of Mallow"). AHS-LA President Ellie Choate has written new duo arrangements for these tunes, and Gracie has recorded audio tracks for you to play along with.  PDFs and audio tracks are now available for members to download free here. You must be LOGGED IN to access this members-only section. (See "MEMBER LOGIN" on the left of this page, to log in.) If you need to join or renew your AHS-LA membership, please go to Membership Info page

These arrangements are also compatible with the Sylvia Woods “A” versions from her "50 Irish Melodies" book in case you would like to work from those arrangements instead of the PDFs. (Measures have been ADDED in Ellie's arrangements, though. If playing from Sylvia's book, be sure to look at and listen to Ellie's arrangements to learn where they differ. Your recording must be consistent with Ellie's arrangements.)

You are welcome to perform either or both of these songs, and to play one hand or both hands as ability allows.

To record your own video, you must listen to the backup track WITH HEADPHONES OR EAR BUDS from one device (such as computer, phone, or tablet) while recording your video on another device.
To help with your preparation, you can also review the Zoom workshop Gracie and Jillian Lopez presented on November 8 2020 demonstrating ways you can use the equipment you have to make your video, here.

Submit your videos to Gracie (link below) by March 5, 2021 and Gracie will post the compilation videos on youtube by March 17.

If you have any questions, you can also email Gracie (link below) and she will be happy to help you.
