Summer School Tutors 2019

Hamish Napier & Jarlath Henderson

Two familiar and most welcome faces returning to teach at Ceol na Coille again this summer! First, on pipes we have Jarlath Henderson who will be returning to teach our advanced pipes class. Secondly on Piano, Hamish Napier will be joining us again this year!

The youngest ever musician to win the prestigious BBC Young Folk Award, Jarlath’s music has alwas been met with high acclaim! He has released several well-received albums with his duo partner Ross Ainslie Music as well as his solo album in 2015 not to mention a second solo album in the works. A three time All-Ireland champion by age 19, Henderson has gone on to perform alongside household names such as: Mike McGoldrick, Capercaillie, Paddy Keenan and Phil Cunningam.

Napier brings an eclectic musical heritage with him to Ceol na Coille. Deeply rooted in the music of his local Strathspey, Hamish went on to study Jazz Keyboard and composition at Berklee in the US. He is much sought after as a composer, performer and tutor and has released two incredibly successful solo albums to date with “The Woods” (his third solo effort) on the way.

Here are the boys in fine fettle at Ceolchoirm le Ceol na Coille last year performing one of Hamish’s compositions!
