Workshops



Artists working in a wide range of disciplines provide quality art instruction through hands-on learning opportunities for people of all ages and all walks of life. The EHAC provides workshop participants with a fully equipped workspace and a professionally trained staff to assist in whatever ways are necessary. We welcome people from all levels of artistic experience to explore, learn and draw inspiration from each other, the beauty of this place, its history and culture. We tailor our workshops to small groups because we believe that intimate, intensive learning experiences are where creativity thrives.

Events for July 2017

  • Jul 01

    July 1st with Matthew Byrne

    8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
    Fee: $25.00

    EHAA is pleased to partner with the English Harbour Recreation Committee to present our province's finest balladeer.


    Storytelling through song is a fundamental duty of traditional music and one that Matthew Byrne performs brilliantly.
    Born into a family of Newfoundland music makers, Matthew's repertoire is heavily influenced by that unique musical lineage "the weaving of a great story with a beautiful melody" and he supports this tradition with powerful vocals, polished guitar work, and a presence that fills the room.His repertoire transcends time and place and hislive performance reminds us how satisfying traditional songs can be when stripped down to their basic elements.
    Byrne's music has traveled well beyond the rugged shores of his Newfoundland home since his 2010 debut, Ballads. Touring as both a solo artist as well as singer with The Dardanelles, he has graced major festival stages worldwide. With his second album, Hearts & Heroes, winning Traditional Recording of the Year at the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Byrne further established himself as one of Canada's most authentic and vital traditional voices.
    Matthew Byrne is set to release his highly-anticipated third album - Horizon Lines - in Summer, 2017. This collection is a deeper exploration of traditional songs from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as one original ballad and a guest appearance by Matthew's dad (Joseph Byrne). Horizon Lines continues Matthew's journey through his musical lineage with ever-evolving guitar skills and accompaniment from some of Newfoundland's finest players.
    Horizon Lines is available online and in-store on August 11th.
