      ANNOUNCEMENT:
      The O'Flaherty Irish Music Retreat is getting great reviews by
      instructors and students. Here are some of the details:

      This year's retreat is October 26-28 at the Hoblitzelle Camp and
      Conference Center in Midlothian, Texas, about 30 minutes south of
      Dallas. Classes begin Friday morning and the retreat ends Sunday
      night. Each day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) there will be three
      90-minute classes and one 60-minute workshop. There's a superb lineup
      of instructors this year, including such wonderful players as Matt
      Cranitch (fiddle), Patrick Ourceau (fiddle), Mickey Dunne (uilleann
      pipes), Tommy O'Sullivan (guitar/singing), Catherine McEvoy
      (flute/whistle), Pat Broaders (bouzouki/singing), Mark Stone
      (bodhran), Therese Honey (harp), and many more. Each night there will
      be instructor concerts and sessions. On the final night, there will
      be a "Singers Scramble" and "Texas Tune Tussle" which features a
      friendly competition among ensembles that are formed at the retreat
      during the weekend followed by a farewell concert. Lodging on campus
      will be available from Thursday evening through Sunday night with
      check out by 11 a.m. on Monday the 29th. Meals will be offered
      Thursday dinner through Monday breakfast. There will be a shuttle to
      and from DFW and Love Field Airports and the camp.

      Costs are $150 for tuition, $80 for youth 18 and under and seniors 65
      and older. Meals, lodging and shuttle service can be reserved
      separately. If you're interested, visit the retreat's website at
      http://www.irishtradmusic.org/retreat or call the retreat office at
      (972) 238-8724. This is a great way to spend a three-day weekend
      being saturated in Irish trad music with a community of players.

      sleep-deprivation experiment. All schedules subject to change or
      perhaps even error. Send listings, preferably in text-only format, to

      2:30 - 5 PM
      The space is outdoors but sheltered (though sometimes we can sing inside).
      Please bring a folding chair as seating is limited. Also, bring some
      water or a non-alcoholic beverage to wet your whistle. Please kindly
      observe the no-smoking policy for the benefit of the singers.
      Everyone who comes will have a chance to sing. Any song that is Irish,
      Scottish, or otherwise Celtic will do. Songs tend to be solo
      round-robin, but singalongs are great too. A cappella singing is
      preferred in the Irish tradition. Just bring your voice. You may also
      bring a guitar or other instrument if you prefer to accompany
      yourself.
