Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh
Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh is a 5 day Traditional Music School paying particular attention to the music, style of the Corca Dhuibhne peninsula in Co. Kerry, Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way.
The next Scoil Cheoil will run from 20th to 24th of February 2019.
We hold about 25 classes in a wide range of instruments as well as sean-nós singing workshops and a sean-nós dance workshop. Over the 5 days there are concerts, sessions, singers’ nights, recitals, a pupils’ concert, guided walk, and all sorts of other events based on various aspects of our tradition.
Concerts will feature performances from many musicians including Liz Carroll, Mary Jane Lomond, Wendy McIsaacs, Mary McNamara, Steve Cooney, Tim Edey, Nell Ní Chróinín, Amanda Millen, Dermot McLaughlin, Sheila, Claire & Anna Friel, Eoin Ó Beaglaoich, Catherine O’Gorman, Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich, Maighread Stiúbhart, Ingrid Henderson, Allan MacDonald, Amanda Millen, Cárthach MacCraith, Aoife & Deirdre Granville, Bríd Donnelly and plenty more.
Coming to Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh not only gives people the opportunity to get a taste of the local music and song, but it gives people a chance to experience the richness of the Irish language here in the heart of the Kerry Gaeltacht. People have the opportunity to attend a ‘ciorcal comhrá’ (conversation circle) where they can practice their cúpla focal, and for those whose ambitions lie further afield, we have classes in Gáidhlig (Scotts Gaelic).
We are also delighted to have the opportunity to invite musicians from all over Ireland to come to Scoil Cheoil to take part in teaching classes and performing at concerts and recitals. Baile an Fheirtéaraigh is a small village with a great energy and a huge enthusiasm for music and is a great place to spend a few days enjoying the music and the company.
