Hey, I've heard that the Maine Fiddle camp is really enjoyable. Personally, I feel it's better to attend a mixed instrument music camp that has pennywhistle workshops, than it would be to attend just a pennywhistle workshop someplace by itself. That's because (imho) the absolute BEST way to get better on an instrument is by playing music in jams with other instruments mixed in.  Go for it!  You have nothing to lose, since even if you can't keep up you'll gain amazing experiences and inspiration to keep at it. Plus you'll likely make some new music friends.   :)

thanks  for the  welcome. i'm hoping  to find  a  pennywhistle  music  camp to attend  next  summer somewhere  in the  east. i  know that   maine fiddle  camp  runs a  pennywhistle program week  , mostly  irish  trad, during the 1st  and 2nd weeks  of  august. subscribe to their  website  and  you can  download  8  years  of  trad  music , searchable  by  name .
