New guitar lessons and 2015/16 is the year of the Accordion

New Term News February 2015
 
If one word could be used to describe recent activities among our members it is enthusiasm.  The Cúil na Sméar Sunday session is chock-a-block with many new faces. The adult Mondays are going well and once again we will return to The Mill Bar on the first Monday in March.  Nowhere is the enthusiasm more apparent than among the tiny tots attending the dancing classes on Tuesdays and it is with great reluctance they leave, having been put through their paces by their patient teacher Deirdre Kiely.
 
The new arrangements for the advanced fiddle classes are working well with Geraldine O’Callaghan, dovetailing well with our Friday classes.  While we had already designated 2015/16 as “the year of the accordion” already numbers have increased before advertising this project.  We have also added guitar lessons to the Friday schedule and an extra concertina and Tin whistle class.
 
 Just as we settle into the bright days of spring and the final term of classes thoughts turn to arrangements for Seachtain na Gaeilge and St Patrick’s Day.  And if that wasn't enough the Fleadh Cheoil and Dungarvan Tradfest/Feile na nDéise programme is taking shape.  Already confirmation of bookings is coming from many performers and a celebration of our cultural heritage is being planned around the 20th birthday of Danú. Details will be announced in late March.
