The Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School finished twelve fantastic years of music, song, dance and Gaeilge with their ‘A Tune a Week for 10 Weeks’ series, which ran for 10 weeks commencing on 28th February, 2022. The online tutorials were broadcast worldwide for anyone that wanted to learn a new tune, song or some Sean Nós steps. This opportunity was provided free of charge on Facebook courtesy of the Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School.
Classes ran from Monday to Saturday for the ten weeks, covering Fiddle, Banjo, Accordion, Harp, Traditional Singing, Concertina, Sean Nós Dancing, Flute, Tin Whistle and Bodhrán.
This extensive resource of one hundred tutorials is now available on the Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School Facebook Page in addition to tutorials from the online Summer Schools from 2021 and 2020. The Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School Committee is working with Archive-it.org and the ITMA to archive this extensive collection of top-class tutorials as well as videos, photos and other materials from the 12 years of Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer Schools.
Fergal and the committee would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone that made the Summer Schools possible since 2011. Ní neart go cur le chéile!
