The next Craiceann Summerschool will take place from Monday 21st of June through Friday 25th of June 2021!

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we have to cancel Craiceann 2020. We hope to see you all again in 2021. This is what we had planned for 2020, and it is likely that we will see most of this in 2021:





The Workshops

During the week as well as the regular daily classes we have included two special workshops/lectures/presentations given by particular experts on subjects related to the bodhrán or to the wider area of irish traditional music and dance. These are held in the theatre of the community centre (the Áras) and are attended by the entire student body who have the opportunity to absorb the new information and also participate in a question and answer session.

The presenters in 2020 are David Lewis & Rolf Wagels and one workshop is yet to be announced.
These workshops are an integral part of the Craiceann experience and are included in the cost of the overall course fee.


David Lewis and Rolf Wagels

David and Rolf are long time members of the management team of Craiceann. They will talk about the development of Craiceann, bodhráns and bodhrán playing over the last twenty years. We are lucky to live in a time in which the bodhrán is evolving and they will look into what has happened in the last twenty years both in musical terms and in the development in bodhrán making. We hope Craiceann has played a vital part in these developments…



We will announce the subject and the presenter of the second workshop in the next few weeks.
