The Ark: Ukulele Céilí

“I’m expecting a stampede of little feet to sign up for this fabulous workshop. We won’t transform them into Lords and Ladies of the Dance in an afternoon, but we do promise they’ll have an amazing time.”
- Festival Director

Irish dancing and music and the sounds of the Pacific come together for this “fun-guaranteed” workshop. Learn to play a well-known céilí tune on the ukulele, the little guitar-like folk instrument from the Pacific islands. You’ll also learn the steps of an Irish céilí dance to go with the music. Towards the end of the workshop we’ll bring it all together for a big Ukulele Céilí –  we promise fun like you’ve never had before! You don’t need to bring a ukulele as we will provide them tuned and ready for you on the day!
