Welcome to The Acadia School of Traditional Music & Arts. "The Acadia Trad School" is dedicated to promoting education and appreciation of traditional music, dance, art, instrument crafts and associated technologies. The school is for people who love traditional music and want to advance their knowledge and skills in music or dance. Student sign up for one week of intensive (but fun loaded!) classes held at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor Maine.

We consider Traditional Music and Arts as forms of artistic expression that have deeply rooted cultural identity and have withstood the test of time. Our initial focus is on music from Ireland, Canada, Scotland, New England, Louisiana, and Appalachia. We will be bringing other cultural music forms into our program as our organization develops. The Acadia Trad School 2014 music program will bring world renowned musicians in for a week of classes, afternoon walk-in workshops, and concerts.

The Acadia Trad School 2014 summer music camp is in Bar Harbor Maine providing music programs for fiddle, guitar, mandolin, concertina, piano, piano accordion, banjo, pipes, whistle, bodhran. dance, song, Celtic culture, and more.

2014 Class schedule: Irish, Old-Time, Acadian week, June 30 through July 4.

Classes are held at the College of the Atlantic historic Seafox house and other facilities on campus. For more information, check out the various pages on our web site. Email us a
