Traditional Irish Music and Dance Workshop


Ireland is a deeply musical nation with a tradition that has been documented for over a thousand years. It is now possibly the world's most popular folk tradition with enthusiasts all over the world.

With the support from BANES, we are able to offer an exciting free taster session with music tutors Karen Tweed, Jane Dempsey and Val Knight – all prominent exponents on the local and national scene.

The workshop is open to players of all instruments and dancers between the ages of 8-19.

The music will be taught by ear, with sheet music provided to assist in learning. Students will need to bring a recording device, a pen and some paper for notes and a packed lunch. Oh and an instrument of course!

There are 45 places for musicians and 30 places for dancers.

Students who attend this course will be offered a whopping 50% discount on the Bath Folk Festival Traditional Music Summer School.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
