Fèis Mhuile – all set for se­cond fes­ti­val

The Oban Times - - News -

FID­DLES are be­ing strung, pipes tuned and voices warmed up in an­tic­i­pa­tion of Fèis Mhuile next month. The fèis will take place in Bunes­san from Fe­bru­ary 18-20. The ex­tremely pop­u­lar tu­tors’ ceilidh will kick things off on the Thurs­day in the Ar­gyll Arms Ho­tel.

Tu­tors will lead classes in fid­dle, gui­tar, pipes, chanter, drum, song, key­board, step danc­ing and ac­cor­dion on Fri­day and Satur­day. Reg­is­tra­tion forms have al­ready been dis­trib­uted to all lo­cal schools.

Chil­dren from other ar­eas are wel­come to par­tic­i­pate. They should con­tact or­gan­is­ers for a reg­is­tra­tion form.

Th­ese forms must be re­turned by to­mor­row (Fri­day Jan­uary 15) for en­trants to be guar­an­teed a place.

The main fèis is open to all chil­dren aged eight to 18, but there is also a fèis bheag for younger mem­bers of the fam­ily, aged three to seven years old. Fèis bheag forms are also avail­able.

It is also hoped to in­crease the adult classes this year and if any­one is in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing, they should con­tact or­gan­is­ers for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

The week­end will cul­mi­nate with the Fèis Con­cert on Satur­day af­ter­noon, where the chil­dren will show­case what they have achieved at the week­end classes, fol­lowed by a ceilidh dance in the evening.
