Fèis book­ings off to a flyer

Argyllshire Advertiser - - DISTRICT NEWS -

BOOK­INGS for Fèis an Tair­beirt’s Septem- ber fes­ti­val day are off to a fly­ing start with some work­shops al­ready fully booked.

Tak­ing place on Satur­day September 16, dur­ing Tar­bert Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, classes for eight- to 18-year-olds will be run in var­i­ous venues in the vil­lage.

There are work­shops for com­plete be­gin­ners to more ad­vanced play­ers in song, dance, drama and tra­di­tional mu­sic.

For the first time this year, a spe­cial work­shop for seven-yearolds will be run along­side the main Fèis. Just like the older group, the Meanbh Fèis (tran­si­tion Fèis) group will have four work­shops with the same tu­tors. But the group will fol­low a fixed pro­gramme and the tu­tors will come to them in one lo­ca­tion.

For younger chil­dren, aged four to six, Fèis Bheag (lit­tle Fèis) will run in the morn­ing, giv­ing the youngsters an in­tro­duc­tion to Gaelic mu­sic and rhythms.

If you are over 18 and don’t want to miss out, the tu­tors will re­turn on Sun­day September 17 to run a class for adults of all abil­i­ties.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to book a place, visit Fèis an Tair­beirt’s web­site: www.feisan­tair­beirt.moon­fruit.com.
