You are invited to a 5-day guitar workshop on Sherkin Island to explore the music of John Renbourn. You will be taught by internationally renowned teachers Didier Bagon and Pascal Froissart, who have a long-standing and dedicated interest in Renbourn’s music.
March 27th to 31st, 2018
This is your opportunity to improve your guitar technique and to share your passion for this music with other musicians. Most importantly, you will engage specifically with the Renbourn sound and technique.
West Cork is a fertile ground for the exploration of folk music and John Renbourn’s interest in Irish culture and music was part of his inspiration and creative process. Sherkin North Shore provides an inspiring setting for the experience of his music, acoustically and environmentally. The natural beauty of the island offers you an opportunity to immerse yourself in this work.
