Summer School 2018

July 1-6, 2018

Now in its 22nd year, the Ceòlas summer school is a proven success. Students come from across the world to the school, held annually in July in Dalabrog, South Uist, to experience traditional music and dance in a community setting.

Expert tuition in piping, fiddle, song, dance and the Gaelic language are offered over a backdrop of community events, including cèilidhs, concerts and guided walks. Tutors from Cape Breton in Canada are an important part of the summer school, and represent the reunion of the global Gaelic Diaspora. Classes run from 9:30am – 3:30pm Monday to Friday and are followed a range of evening events.

Price: £250 (full-price); £175 (Western Isles-rate); £75 (Youth Fee: 14-17 yo); £10 drop-in rate per class (Western Isles); full scholarship (Highland Music Trust: 16-25 yo; full)
