Monday 8th – Friday 12th April 2019
Applications are now closed for 2019.
All children P1-P7 are welcome and catered for but as this is a festival through the medium of Gaelic we will focus on accepting children from GME schools or children who have some level of spoken Gaelic from usage of the language at home etc. Participants have the opportunity to try out or improve their skills in a number of musical instruments, song, drama and art as well as improving their Gaelic language skills. This event normally attracts around 80 participants.
Beginners are very welcome to choose new instruments to learn, and those who already play an instrument or sing will also find the experience very rewarding. We aim to cater for all abilities, right up to accomplished musicians and singers. You don’t need to be able to read music and you don’t need to have any previous knowledge of traditional music to enjoy a Fèis. Workshops are taught by ear with participants learning tunes and songs one phrase at a time.
Fèis events are fun and friendly. We want to help you improve your playing, grow in confidence and learn more about the Gaelic language and culture.
