Spe­cial Septem­ber for Fèis an Tair­beirt

Campbeltown Courier - - DISTRICTS -

BOOK­INGS for Fèis an Tair­beirt’s Septem­ber 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-18-year-olds will be run in var­i­ous venues around 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 sev­enyear-olds 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 4-6, Fèis Bheag (lit­tle fèis) will run in the morn­ing, giv­ing the young­sters an in­tro­duc­tion to Gaelic mu­sic and rhythms.

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