My web master Cyber-Space Jedi Obi Wan Gamache has suggested to me that I need to do more blogs and that there is nothing wrong with doing several short ones instead of one longer monthly(ish) one. I asked for feedback and I got it! So here goes!
Sorry I've been gone for a bit but its been a hectic summer and early Fall for yours truly. I have just done some of the coolest gigs I have ever been fortunate enough to play in and will be writing about them over the next couple of weeks. They were the INAFA Festival in Eau Clare WI, the Queen Maeve School of trad Irish music and dance in Sligo Ireland, my debut in Carnegie Hall N.Y.C. and my 7th Annual Wind on the Bay Flute bash weekend in Rhode Island.
Welcome to the second edition of my newsletter “The Flutopia Press”.
Sorry for the delay in getting issue two out but we’ve had some technical problems for the past couple of months that have been mostly dealt with at this point by my trusty web master Obi Wan Gamache. My undying thanks to him for successfully battling the Dark Side of the Cyber Universe…
First off, thanks to all of you for reading the last blog and now for checking this one out too. I have been off line for a bit but hopefully am back full time now. My special thanks to web master Obi Wan Gamache for his tireless efforts of the past couple of months. In that time he has been doing battle with the Dark Side in the Cyber Wars on my behalf slaying sucky servers, battling busted blades and eradicating errant e mail errors. Well done Obi Wan, the Force is strong in you!
Welcome to the first edition of the Healy Flute Company newsletter "The Flutopia Press"!
With the help of my new web master and designer Obi Wan Gamache (the Force is strong in him!) I am starting to make use of some of the cool cyber bells and whistles that are now available. It is especially helpful to me (neo-Luddite that I am) that the programs have been dumbed down so much in the past few years. Flutes and fifes I get, computers, not so much!!!
In conjunction with the world famous resort community of Arosa, Switzerland and their "MUSIK-KURSWOCHEN" (music course week), I will be teaching a week long series of classes on Irish flute and tin whistle music. The program will take place JULY 26 - AUGUST 1, 2015. I will be posting information and videos about the event very soon!!! Imagine, learning about traditional Irish music high in the Swiss Alps, staying in a beautiful hotel called "Hotel Hohe Promenade" a 3 star hotel with AMAZING food and service...
