Our Yearly Program: Fèis Days and Fèis Week
Seachdain na Fèise | Fèis Week
A week-long event open to children aged five to sixteen which takes place over the first week during the October holidays. Participants have the opportunity to try out or improve their skills in a number of musical instruments, song and dance disciplines as well as improving their Gaelic language skills. This event normally attracts around sixty-five participants in the 8-16 age group and around twenty under 8’s in their own programme of activities, known as Fèis Bheag. Approximately fifteen tutors and supervisors are employed for the week, assisted by a number of volunteers.
Làithean Fèise | Fèis Days
These are one-off workshop days with guest tutors which concentrate on specific subjects for a whole day. Subjects offered during the last five years include fiddle, whistle, accordion, groupwork and accompaniment, clarsach, step-dance, song, vocal techniques, keyboard and guitar.
