Live In-Studio: Artists from ZoukFest 2011
Fri. 6/3 at 3pm: In the studio this week are bouzouki masters Roger Landes, Luke Plumb of Shooglenifty, and Alec Finn of DeDannan. They will be joined by Irish fiddler Randal Bayes. All four artists are in town for ZoukFest, a week-long world music camp running from June 5-11 in the UNM Student Union Building.
More about ZoukFest:
There will be a full week of classes on a wide variety of instruments and styles from around the world, including expert instruction on bouzouki, Irish flute, fiddle, mandolin, uilleann pipes, tinwhistle, banjo, guitar and voice taught by a dozen master musicians in 25 workshops each day.

In what has become a ZoukFest tradition, AMP Concerts hosts two nights of closing concerts at the Outpost Performance space on June 10 and 11. This is a chance for the rest of the community to join the ZoukFest attendees in seeing the instructors let loose and show what they can do. Fans of traditional music are treated to a mix of Irish, Balkan, bluegrass, Appalachian and French tunes over the course of two nights. For more info, visit ampconcerts.org.
