Do you play, sing, or just enjoy Irish, Scottish, or Cape Breton traditional music and camping? Pitch your tent at Deception Pass State Park Lower Loop campground for a casual weekend of tunes, songs, food, drink, and fun in the woods by the beach.

Camping is one of the safest things you can do in a global pandemic because the great outdoors has great air circulation! Of course, we will be following distancing protocols and wearing masks when away from our own campsites.

Make your reservation on November 2, 2020 to ensure that we fill the Lower Loop campground with folks friendly to the music traditions we love.

I'm thrilled to have been invited back to this prestigious event. I will be teaching intermediate harp students and offering workshops to all and am looking forward to spending the week with the students and my fellow presenters, Sharlene Wallace, Caroline Mackay, and Phamie Gow. They've also added a cello workshop with Morag Northey. I'm also pretty excited to be able to dine at the Bear's Paw in Lower Wells again!

Using the innovative language teaching method pioneered by Willem Larsen and Brian O hAirt in Portland, Oregon called Language Hunters, Seumas will keep the participants speaking and listening to Gaelic for most of the day. The Language Hunters method relies on active learning, problem solving, and immersive game play to develop oral fluency. It is particularly well suited for mixed-level groups, so the full-day workshop will be suitable for anyone from a total beginner to an experienced teacher wanting to explore immersive learning techniques. We’ll sing, play, and laugh through our one-room Gaelic school day. $25 pre-registration required. $15 students and seniors.
