BAND CAMP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. THERE ARE STILL JUST A FEW PLACES LEFT FOR THE SUNDAY BODHRAN WORKSHOP. 

The Bodhran Workshop can be booked here.

Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin’s traditional music academy, Acadamh Ceoil Chaoimhín Uí Dhochartaigh, will host a two-day BAND CAMP for young traditional musicians. Working with a number of internationally acclaimed tutors, they will have the opportunity, in mixed instrument groups, to create and arrange tunes, new and old. They will also be able to try their hand at a few steps and songs.

This year we are delighted to have such an exciting line up of tutors including Luke Daniels, Michael Rooney, Ryan Molloy, David Doocey, Kieran LeonardGerard Butler, Arlene Mc Carroll and Niall Hanna and a few surprise guests along the way.

All students will get the chance to participate in a sean-nós dance session and engage in other fun traditional-music related activities!

On Sunday we have a very special Bodhran/ Percussion class with Kieran Leonard.

The Saturday camp will be for intermediate level players (age 7+) up to Grade 3 level.

The Sunday camp will be for more advanced players (age 7+) from Grade 4+ level.

Band Camp is open to players of all instruments. Places are limited so booking is essential so please book early to guarantee a place.
