About

Welcome everyone, and thank you so much for visiting.

I am Tricia Hastings, an Irish fiddle player who loves to record and make music, and I would like to ask for your help in attending Ethno Norway this summer, representing Ireland in a Folk Ensemble.

This annual gathering attracts musicians between the ages of 16 and 30 from many different countries, and I will be part of the first Irish group delegates to participate. The participants each bring a traditional tune from their home culture, forming a "folk orchestra" that performs at local concerts and outdoor arenas in mid August.


Bio:

With over twenty years of experience I have a folk album under my belt with my band 'Just Us' and teaching and festival experience in Belgium, UK, Australia and Ireland.

I completed my Grade 8 in Irish Music with distinction in 2013 and taught at the Turning Wave Irish Festival Australia in 2014

Following this I was fortunate to attend Ethno Australia in Brisbane and be part of a Folk Ensemble of 30 musicians who performed to 10,000 people at The Woodford Folk Festival.

I have always wanted to learn more Scandinavian music and attending Ethno Norway will enhance my current skills and enable me to study other folk genres intensely within a week.

With your kind support, I will be able to attend Ethno Norway and return with lots of music recordings, videos, photographs and music notations!


Digital Media:

My educational background in in Digital Media/Television Sports Production so I hope to produce strong audiovisual content that funders will treasure..

How the funds will be used Your contribution will help me to afford:

Participation fee @ Ethno Norway (inc accom&food): 125:

Euro

- Fees(10%): 28Euro

- Materials(USB's/CD's) 122Euro

Total: 280 Euro

In summary, having a funded trip to Norway would be a dream come true and one of the highlights of my musical career to date.

I am no stranger to Ethno and have attended Ethno Flanders (Belgium) in 2012 and again in 2014.

Risks and challenges

Technical:
To offset technical problems I will bring alot of sound and video recording equipment to Norway to capture the workshops, live performances and music jamming.

Uploading files: I will upload files to a secure video hosting website with private passwords for all funders.

Time:
I have set realistic time goals for the rewards, however some rewards will require mutual time frames of both parties(Skype music lessons) and tour of Co.Clare(1 day suitable to all parties).

Postage: I will keep postage receipts and ensure bulky items are insured for loss/damage.

I have no other projects at the moment and will return from Norway in mid August 2015 and aim to have items posted by early September 2015.

Kind Regards.
