A fine fest for Fèis an Tairbeirt
What would the Tarbert Music Festival be without Fèis an Tairbeirt? Music lovers of all ages joined the various workshops hosted by Fèis an Tairbeirt, from the high tech music technology workshop to the traditional accordion and, of course, an instrument as old as humanity, singing.
New tutors such as RURA band member, David Foley, joined the festivities this year, teaching young music enthusiasts the way of the bodhran. Anna Garvin, who is studying piano at RSC and is working on her Duke of Edinburgh award with Fèis an Tairbeirt, taught keyboards.
