Ceol Aneas Irish Music Festival 2012

Friday 1st-Monday 4th June 2012

Similar to the traditional Irish music summer schools in Ireland, The Ceol Aneas programme features instrumental tuition, meet the artist workshops, Ceili Dance, a concert featuring all tutors and numerous traditional Irish music ‘sessions' around Nelson, running on into the small hours.

For lovers of Irish music, those who are not musicians and also those not registered for the weekend tuition, there is still lots to join in with. There will be a Ceili at the Age Concern Hall at 7pm on Saturday evening and a concert at The Suter Art Gallery Theatre starting at 7.30pm on Sunday evening. Each of the tutors will be featured in various combinations.
