Introduction workshop Bagpipes – Menno Wester
Friday 12.00 – 14.00 and Saturday 13.30 – 15.30
Location – Groene Ring
Have you always wanted to play the bagpipes? During CaDansa we are going to discover this instrument. Above all we are going to play the bagpipes ourselves! Together we are going to try playing a melody and discover this instrument. It is not about how ‘good’ you are, having fun is the most important. You don’t have to bring an instrument, we will provide one for you.
We are going to play on bagpipes like they are used in France, Flanders and the Netherlands. Think about the instruments you see on paintings of Jan Steen or Pieter Brueghel. We do not have bagpipes from Ireland or Scotland.
This workshop is meant for everyone who is interested and wants to invest two hours into discovering the bagpipes from France, Belgium and the Netherlands. You don’t need experience in playing music or knowledge of music, your enthusiasm and courage are enough!
Places in the music workshops are limited, so to join this workshop, it’s important to register. You can do this by filling out this form.
