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 will open in the summer of 2013 hosting workshops with some of the great traditional musicians from Ireland, Canada, and America.
2013 Class schedule: Irish/Old-Time week, July 1 - 5, Acadian/Québécois, July 15-19
Classes will be 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 email@example.com.
