Frank Edgley Posted January 22, 2004 Share Posted January 22, 2004 Dear Ken, The dates for the Goderich Celtic College are Aug. 9 - 13. Most people arrive on Sunday (Aug 8th), and stay until the week-end festival (Aug 15th). So far, I am the only concertina teacher, but there are others to be named. This is a great week, with over 50 instructors, mostly in instrumental music, but also with classes in singing,Irish language, cooking, Celtic artwork, blacksmithing, stone carving etc. for spouses who may or may not play an instrument. There are free concerts every night, by musicians who will be appearing on the weekend, slow jam and sessions. Last year, performers included Dervish, Davey Spillane, Sean Keane, Gearoid OhAllmuirhain, and many others. The school is a real steal at $230 US per person, and local accomodations are quite reasonable. At this summer school, the teachers and performers are the most accessible of any I have attended.
