About

Fèis an Tairbeirt was established in 2016 by a group of volunteers who are keen to ensure that people of all ages in Mid-Argyll and Kintyre are offered the chance to learn to play an instrument and experience the joy of playing music together with others.

Fèis in Scottish Gaelic means “festival” or “feast.” It has come to mean a tuition festival, usually for children and young people, which celebrates the music and song culture connected with the Gaelic language.

It is an opportunity for individuals to come together and develop skills in the Gaelic arts – song, dance, drama, and traditional music on a wide range of instruments. Our aim is to inspire the next generation of children and adult learners to play traditional music with some of Scotland’s leading musicians and tutors.
