This Saturday, April 18, the Seacoast Irish Cultural Association (SICA) will be hosting it’s Spring Ceili at the Dover Elks on Rte. 108 with Eamon Coyne and Dave Surette as the featured performers. As part of the festivities, the lads will lead a workshop on fiddle and accompanying Irish music.
I have to say that I’ve admired Dave Surette’s style of accompaniment for a while and have wanted to chat with him about his approach…so while I can’t stay for the potluck supper at 6pm (yum!) or the dance, I am definitely looking forward to learning a few tricks on accompaniment from Dave. (Let’s see how many of them I remember that night at McMenemy’s.)
