2013 brings back two teachers that haven’t been teaching in recent years: World bodhrán champion Colm Phelan and All Ireland Champion Siobhán O’Donnell return to Inis Oirr in 2013! So our tutorial team for 2013 will include Martin O’Neill, Cormac Byrne, Jim Higgins, Aimee Farrell-Courtney, Colm Phelan, Siobhán O’Donnell and Rolf Wagels. To read more about the teachers, follow this link.
Also in 2013, we are launching a new teaching module called “The Craiceann Masterclass”. This will be in addition to our normal range of six classes from Beginner to Advanced. It is being introduced in response to suggestions from our tutors that there is now a need for a professional level teaching experience targeted at that small number of people who are currently playing and performing at the very highest level. All details can be found at “The Classes” page.
The three workshops/lectures which will take place during the day between classes will be given by Mícheál O’hÁlmháin, Caitlín Nic Gabhann and Martin O’Neill, and promise to be varied, entertaining and informative.
