5 - 7 July 2017
Feis Eige is part of Feisean nan Gaidheal, the association of tuition festivals in the Highlands and Islands, “Feis” (pronounced “feysh”) being the Gaelic word for festival.
It is a festival of traditional music and culture which takes place in July. It is a family event, aiming at youngsters (8 to 18) primarily, but also offering adults and younger children (5 to 7) a chance to participate.
The Feis offers intensive tuition in small groups with experienced tutors in subjects such as – button key accordion, fiddle, tin-whistle, guitar, percussion and ceilidh dancing.
Previous knowledge is not essential: beginners have a chance to try the instruments of their choice whilst those already learning benefit from expert guidance from tutors who number some of the best known traditional musicians in the Highlands.
