British Flute Society Convention – Day 4 FINAL23rd August 2010
I must say that despite barely playing a note over the past few days I am totally fluted out! Today started with a brilliant beatboxing session with Greg Pattillo (SEE VIDEO ABOVE – COURTESY OF YOUTUBE).
He’s a really good teacher and if you can’t get to see him live I would definetely recomend checking him out further on you tube.
This was followed by recitals by Unji Chung, Elzbieta Wolenska and a class on how to play Irish music with Eimear Mcgeown. I decided to have a break after this to visit the trade stands but I went back after spending far too much money on music to see a recital of contemporary Celtic fusion with Philipe Barnes and finally a recital by the scottish flute trio featuring Japanese percussionist Joji Hirota. Anyway, I’ve had a fantastic if exhausting time over the past few days and I’m really looking forward to getting home and fitting a bit of practice in before baby Dawkes arrives.
