World-class Faculty

The Acadia Trad Festival brings together some of the most renowned performers in the world. But our faculty are more than performers — they are talented, passionate teachers as well. Faculty will also teach afternoon workshops, along with a number of other workshop instructors. Please see our Classes & Workshops page for course descriptions.
