Held in Miltown Malbay which is better known for its annual Summer School held in honour of Willie Clancy, the Concertina Cruinniú is for lovers of the Concertina. The word Cruinniú means ‘gathering’ and that’s what this is, a gathering of musicians who love the instrument and those who love hearing them make music on it.
There are classes (from absolute beginner up), lectures, concerts, recitals, many sessions along the Concertina Music Trail in selected local pubs at night and loads of that elusive quantity ‘craic’. You can learn about the concertina, which one to choose and how to repair and maintain it yourself.
The cost for two days’ tuition and admission to all events, except Noel Hill and Tríona Ní Dhomhaill Concert is €75. Early Bird Registration is available for students until 31st January 2018 for €60. For booking and further details please contact [email protected] or call +353 (0)65 708 5785.
