Belfast’s first ever Summer School of Traditional Music is happening this July and August.
Chieftains fiddler, Tara Breen, is set to tutor and perform at the inaugural Belfast Summer School of Traditional Music from 31 July – 4 August, alongside of wealth of famous names from the world of traditional music.
Traditional music is going to provide the effervescent soundtrack to this summer as the first-ever Belfast Summer School of Traditional Music (BSSoTM) brings jigs and reels to all four corners of Belfast city – but with its heart beating in the culturally rich Cathedral Quarter.
For five days, hundreds of budding traditional musicians, young and old (6+), will get the chance to learn from the finest performers around in what is sure to be one of those “I was there” events.

Is your banjo sounding like it should. Banjos will need a periodic set-up to keep them playing at their best. If you can’t carry out this work yourself then this is what I do best. Just drop me a quick email and I can arrange a time slot to setup your banjo. Typical setups will include
- disassembly for cleaning & reassembly including resetting/replacing the head
- Changing strings
- Action height
- Bridge slots
- Nut slots
- Fret conditioning
- Tailpiece position/condition
- Loose hardware
