Now in its 22nd year, the Ceòlas summer school is a proven success. Students come from across the world to the school, held annually in July in Dalabrog, South Uist, to experience traditional music and dance in a community setting.
Expert tuition in piping, fiddle, song, dance and the Gaelic language are offered over a backdrop of community events, including cèilidhs, concerts and guided walks. Tutors from Cape Breton in Canada are an important part of the summer school, and represent the reunion of the global Gaelic Diaspora. Classes run from 9am – 3:30pm Monday to Friday and are followed a range of evening events.
Price: £250 (full-price); £175 (Western Isles-rate); £10 drop-in rate per class (Western Isles).
About the organiser
Ceòlas is rooted within the Gàidhlig heartland of South Uist and is a distillation of the island’s culture and heritage.
The organisation focuses on performance and education that celebrates and promotes local Gàidhlig culture and heritage as well as the strong cultural links of the Gàidhealtachd diaspora. Since its establishment in 1996, Ceòlas has grown from a week-long music and dance school to become one of Scotland’s leading Gaelic culture, heritage and arts organisations. Ceòlas is a key driver in the island’s social and cultural resurgence and is committed to promoting a vibrant Gàidhlig culture for future generations.
