FEIS na h-Apainne is de­lighted to have re­ceived two grants, one from Feisean nan Gaid­heal and one from Ar­gyll and Bute Com­mu­nity Fund­ing.

The feis runs once a month and pro­vides qual­ity tuition in the tra­di­tional mu­sic of clarsach, pipes, chanter, whis­tle, gui­tar, fid­dle and ac­cor­dion, as well as of­fer­ing tuition in High­land dance, group work and mu­sic tech­nol­ogy.

It is open to all ages and en­ables par­tic­i­pants a chance to learn these in­stru­ments. They choose four or five each time.

Mu­sic tuition op­por­tu­ni­ties are hard to get in ru­ral ar­eas and can be ex­pen­sive.

The feis of­fers reg­u­lar and af­ford­able tuition and a good choice for chil­dren to try and then de­velop. Grants cover about half the costs, with fundrais­ing and low fees pay­ing the rest. The next one is June 10.
