Fèis Alba

Fèis Alba air Loidhne

For more than ten years Fèis Alba has taken place in Plockton during the first week of July and most recently it has been the core training event for the Fèisean Ceilidh Trails which would normally take place across the country throughout July and August.

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 and the social distancing measures which are in place we have moved Fèis Alba online for the first time ever. Our online event will provide participants with the same high quality learning experience that they would normally receive and we will aim to cover all aspects of the training we would usually provide.

Fèis Alba Air Loidhne will take place from 6th – 10th July 2020 and will be open to Ceilidh Trail participants and advanced level musicians aged 14 – 20. For further information and booking please see below:
