Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh is a 5 day traditional music school held in Ballyferriter, in the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht, each year in February. Since we began in 2005 we have organised a huge range of trad events including concerts, lectures, sessions, classes, workshops and all sorts of musical gatherings over the annual 5 day school. We celebrate the music and style of Corca Dhuibhne (the Dingle Peninsula) and also invite local, national and international musicians to take part.
For the last 9 years we have had the support of the Irish Arts Council. Just before Christmas we were informed that we would have no Arts Council funding for 2016 - this leaves us 9k euro short. We are trying to make up the difference before our 2016 events begin on February 17th.
We would really appreciate any support so that we can continue to provide high quality artistic events, celebrate our living culture and pass on the Irish tradition from generation to generation.
