This will be the NINTH year of our folk music, dance and song summer school – for all ages and abilities – led by a crack team of tutors who have detailed knowledge and extensive experience of a wide spectrum of folk music. We’re confirming tutor availability at the moment and will add details very soon. Expect the usual mix of dance, song, fiddle, accordion, guitar and mixed-instrument, with a programme that’s fluid enough for you to move from group to group should you wish. Throughout the week, we will work towards a full-group ensemble piece, with the whole summer school, a powerful way of bringing everything we do, and all the participants together, in one shared experience, allowing you to learn about how to structure a performance, work together, use all levels of skills (in small and large groups) – and create something that’s amazing and all inclusive!

“Friendly and welcoming group of people, plenty of laughs, energetic dancing and really enjoyable sessions in the bar afterwards!” Participant

Who’s it For?

Singers, dancers and musicians of all ages and levels of experience; there’s something for everyone! Please let us know your preferred main group when booking – but be assured, you’ll be able to move between groups should you wish!
