Teaching Online Irish Fiddle Class (M-T-W)
Acclaimed fiddler Winifred Horan was born in New York City to Irish parents and studied piano, Irish fiddle, Irish dance and classical violin. Her very eclectic musical upbringing in the cultural melting pot of New York City can be heard in every note and phrase in her immediately identifiable sound and style of playing. She attended the Mannes School of Music in NY and went on to attend the New England Conservatory in Boston. Horan is best known as co-founder of the Irish super group Solas in 1995. She recorded 13 albums with Solas and toured the world with the group for over 23 years. She has also recorded four solo albums, duet and trio CDs. Outside of her work with Solas, she is well known for her teaching skills with violin students across the world. She has been a member of the faculty at The New England Conservatory in Boston.
