These OAIM Irish Music retreats take place in the small village of Liscannor on the West coast of Ireland and consist of daily group workshops, masterclasses, sessions and concerts. Time is also set aside for relaxation, sightseeing and other activities.
The dates for the three summer retreats are:
Flute Retreat: June 30th - July 4th, with tutors Kevin Crawford, Niall Keegan and Kirsten Allstaff.
Fiddle Retreat: July 14th - 18th, with tutors Tola Custy, Katie Boyle and Yvonne Casey.
