Trying to build up your session repertoire? This is the workshop for you!

Rather than having a workshop to learn tunes, we have designed a workshop to help you play the tunes.

At the start of each month, you will receive recordings and a tune map of 3 session tunes played often in the Baltimore/DC area, chosen by Sean.

Work on the tunes yourself, with friends, or with your teacher during the month. At the end of the month, come to a special workshop at the Céilí House, where Sean will work on how to play the tunes in a session setting.

The workshop will be followed by a group meal.

The Céilí House is located at 807 Massachusetts Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002

Cost is $400 for the year, October -May.

Family rate is $400 for the first family member, $200 for each additional family member.

Sean McComiskey is among the most innovative young performers on the button accordion, with a unique harmonic style that has earned him a spot in the pantheon of Irish accordionists far beyond his native Baltimore. As the son of legendary button accordion player and National Heritage Fellow Billy McComiskey, Sean has been surrounded by Irish Traditional music his entire life and has developed a deep appreciation for the rich tradition of which he is a part.

This has helped Sean establish a reputation as a highly regarded teacher and promulgator of Irish music and earned him teaching positions with the Catskills Irish Arts Week, the Augusta Heritage Center’s Irish Arts Week, the Chris Langan Traditional Irish Music Weekend in Toronto, the CCE Musical Arts and Dance (MAD) Week in Washington, DC, the Baltimore Irish Arts Center, and the Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival.

In addition to being a highly regarded teacher, Sean has performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. He's recorded albums and toured with groups like NicGaviskey, the Old Bay Ceili Band, and O'Malley's March.

In 2014, Sean formed the Baltimore-based acoustic roots group, Charm City Junction, with Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, and Alex Lacquement on upright bass. In 2015, they released their self-titled debut album and in 2016 were nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association's Band Momentum Award.
