September 17th – 20th

Dear Festival followers,

Forgive me if you’ve already received this. I’m making sure as the original post does not seem to have sent.

Two days ago we posted the schedule for our virtual fiddle and flute workshops. Please take a look if those are your instruments.
Today we’re posting numerous other workshop opportunities, including whistle, guitar, voice, and uilleann pipes.

This is not the last workshop posting. Before the day is done look for one additional post for workshops on storytelling, language, and use of music with the spoken word.

As with our nightly performances, there is no charge for the workshops. However, if you do participate we encourage you to donate to the artists as you are able to. There will be donation links provided.
We will announce any changes if, and as they occur.

Note: All times Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

So, with all that said, here are some fabulous workshop opportunities:
