Fiodhna delivered master classes on tin whistle to both local and visiting players. With the class lasting for two and a half hours, students learned a few new tunes, techniques and theory. With other master classes on fiddle, accordion, song and flute, students performed in a finale concert. See this link for more details.
In preparation for the Kincora Tradidional Weekend from 19-21st April 2013, Fiodhna joins her father Bobby Gardiner and the house band to play a number of selections. Additionally, she speaks to Ciaran Hanrahan about her time in the Middle East, where she played with an Irish traditional group called Inis Oirr. She finishes up by playing a Scottish air which she learned from Marianne Campbell in Abu Dhabi, entitled ‘The Dreams of Old Pa Fogerty’. Fiodhna is accompanied on keyboard by her husband, Padraig.
