This week's Listening Room is participatory! I recently came across this incredible series on YouTube, called Mary O's Virtual Sessions, presented by Tune Supply. I first heard of Tune Supply from one of the cofounders, the incredible violinist/fiddler, Caitlin Warbelow, but I was too caught up in my quarantine life with a toddler to check it out until now. And I am so glad I did! I know next to nothing about Irish music, but these sessions present a unique opportunity to listen, learn, and jam alongside Irish music masters. And for those of us who are a bit shy (ahem) we can do it in the privacy of our own homes while we stumble along learning a new idiom.
