Tin Whistle Class

A kind welcome to our class

Hi my name is  Maria Rafferty.

I am a Tin whistle player, fluter and singer from Belfast.


I have been a part of the Traditional Irish Music scene in the city from 1987.


Primarily a session player in my younger years, I am also a past member of many local bands and groups, ranging from Folk, to Traditional Irish Music groups to singing groups/circles and choirs.


Trained through the McPeake School of Music, and having had the opportunity to spend many years in the company of well known and respected musicians from the locality, I am very thankful of the large repertoire of music I have acquired and now share this with the many students I teach in the greater Belfast area and beyond.
