Organiser Blas Summer School

Organiser of Blas Directors Roundtable

The Blas International Summer School of Irish Traditional Music and Dance has firmly established itself as one of Ireland’s most prestigious university accredited summer schools, drawing students from all over the world to spend two weeks gaining access to the expertise of some of Ireland’s finest artists. In addition to expert tuition and master classes, Blas students can expect a whole range of activities including lectures on Irish traditional music and dance topics, Irish language classes, lunchtime and evening concerts, sessions, céilithefield-trips and above all, the unique opportunity to share tunes with some of Ireland’s leading traditional musicians.

Following its launch, a range of public events will take place throughout the summer school, including: a number of public lectures, most notably the annual Francis Roche Memorial Lecture; a Bilingual Interview with a seminal performer and figure in the Irish music scene; and daily public concert events which have proved to be immensely popular in the past.
