A fine fest for Fèis an Tair­beirt

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

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.
