Event Details

The Craiceann Bodhrán Summerschool was launched in 2001, and has continued each year since then with over 1,000 students from 20 countries enjoying the Craiceann experience.

The Bodhrán Summerschool is arranged around a series of classes given by some of the world’s best bodhrán players and teachers. It also includes special workshops relating to the instrument itself, and traditional Irish music in general.

Every evening, music sessions are held in the island’s pubs, and students are welcome to bring their drum and join in.

On two evenings, concerts are performed by top-class bands. The first concert will feature Goitse featuring Colm Phelan. The other concert will feature one of the up and coming bands in Ireland, Fuinneamh (meaning ‘energy’ in Irish). Their bodhrán player, James O’Connor, is the current All Ireland bodhrán champion and a long time Craiceann student.

Craiceann 2018 is fully booked! There is a waiting list for those who want to be notified in case of any cancellations.
