Just in time to learn some tunes for St. Patrick’s Day! We’re excited to announce that Marla Fibish’s brand new video course, Irish Mandolin, is now live on Peghead Nation.
As Marla explains in the course introduction video above, you’ll learn to play the dance music of Ireland with an authentic feel and rhythm, focusing on jigs, reels, hornpipes, slip jigs, polkas, and other common forms. Marla helps you work on your picking-hand rhythm, learning melodies, and adding ornamentation to bring the tunes to life.
Marla is one of the most prominent voices in Irish music on the mandolin, and her dynamic playing is featured on her recording with the band Three Mile Stone and on The Morning Star, a duo CD with Jimmy Crowley, an all-instrumental project that features Irish music on an array of mandolin-family instruments.
In addition to the mandolin, Marla plays mandola, tenor guitar, and button accordion. She sings and writes music and is known for her musical settings of works from a variety of poets, which are featured in her duo project Noctambule, with guitarist and husband Bruce Victor.
An experienced and sought-after teacher, Marla teaches private students and classes, and has been a staff instructor at many music camps, including the Mandolin Symposium, the Swannanoa Gathering, California Coast Music Camp, Colorado Roots Music Camp, Lark Camp, and many more.
