Extended String Techniques Workshop

Extended String Techniques Workshopwith Darragh Morgan, violin & Robin Michael, cello

This interactive workshop aimed at folk fiddlers, young string students and amateur and semi-professional string players will cover a range of unusual and extended techniques that contemporary performers are now often required to use. There will be a short informal performance by students at the end of the workshop.

The workshop will be from 10am - 12pm, with Darragh Morgan, violin and Robin Michael, 'cello.

"violinist Darragh Morgan and cellist Robin Michael construct the wonderfully detailed sound worlds impressively: chilly false harmonics shimmer and form whirlpools of ambience, while icy cluster chords receive impeccable tuning."
