The opening of tAcadamh Ceoil Chaoimhín Uí Dhochartaigh represents the legacy of the successful and historic Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann held in Derry in 2013, where traditional Irish music was shared and celebrated by 430,000 people from all communities and all backgrounds.
Our vision is to create a hub for traditional music teaching and learning in the North West – a centre of excellence for the traditional arts that promotes participation and inclusivity. With dedicated instrument classes, fun group options, individual lessons and regular formal and informal performance opportunities there will be something to suit all ages. Come and join us for a few tunes … Engage – Excel – Enjoy!
