Sessions & Workshops

As well as a full concert schedule we have a huge and varied range of music & dance workshops and sessions at the festival; and tailor these to cover all ability levels from improvers right through to the more experienced.

The full details of these events all come together a little later in the year, but we’ve already finalised our Irish Session.

We have Lúnasa at the festival this year, and are pleased to confirm that Kevin Crawford, the band’s World Class Irish flute player will lead our Irish Session.

This is a rare opportunity for festival attendees to come and join in a session and share a tune with one of the World’s finest Irish musicians – everyone’s invited, and it’s guaranteed to be a memorable session for all!

We’ll post more details closer to the event, as well as information on the other sessions and workshops.
