Traditional Irish Music
2 days left to support this. Galway based musicians Colm and Kelly Gannon are nearing the end of their Kickstarter campaign to try and raise funds for a new summer school in Spiddal, Co. Galway. Recently on their Facebook page they wrote that "We are looking for some help to get our project going. We are organising a summer school in Spiddal! Something that has never been done in the area before. Getting funding for the arts in Ireland is proving difficult this year because funding for the arts seems to be down, but we feel that our project is such an important one that we would reach out to the community for help.
Myself and Kelly have taught at so many summer schools and see the benefit it has to the attending students as well as the locality. So here we are trying a new route to get this off the ground! All help, no matter how big or small, will be hugely appreciated! If successful we will be making this an annual summer event that will grow alongside with the tradition. We will be including Master Tutors, of the highest standard, on all instruments as well as concerts, sessions, Irish classes and lectures throughout the week! We know how hard it is to get a project like this off the ground and that the first year is always the hardest, that is why we are reaching out! We would like to thank you all in advance for your help!!! (Help us with our mini Willie Week!)"
