Traditional Irish Music
Are you mad for trad? Are you a violinist, a fiddler, a guitarist or a flutist wanting to explore and earn more about traditional Irish music? Are you an accomplished step dancer who wants a break from competition and are ready for the fun of sean-nos (old-style) dancing or set dancing?
