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 & songs.
