2023 Trad Music Retreat Weekend

Updated: Aug 27, 2023

After the success of our first two trad music retreat weekends we are delighted to be back again this year from July 14th - 16th. All instruments welcome.

Situated in the protected Slieve Aughty Mountain area of East Clare, Turas House overlooking Iniscealtra (Holy Island), is the site for this weekend. Those who have attended these workshops in the past have expressed how different it feels to be in such a rustic setting, overlooking Iniscealtra while immersing themselves in the East Clare style of music. It has been described as "another level of connection to the music of this area, that is unique".

The weekend consists of night sessions on Friday and Saturday, workshops Saturday and Sunday and you can design your own ideal weekend from the following.

Pat O'Connor will deliver a workshop on Saturday and Sunday morning 10-11.30 a.m.

Cli Donnellan will deliver a workshop on Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon - 1.30 p.m.

You can attend one workshop by one tutor, two workshops on the same day, one workshop on one day, or avail of all four workshops.

Tea/coffee provided. For a more extensive package and bookings email
