BRIMS is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Susan Fletcher Tansey Youth Scholarships for Celtic Week at Swannanoa Gathering, July 13-19, 2014. The two $500 scholarships are made possible by a generous donation from Interpretive Simulations and covers the full week’s tuition (room and board are extra). Celtic Week participants may take up to four courses from some of the finest musicians and instructors in the world, go to two concerts just for Celtic Week participants, have a blast at the two dances, and, of course, play in the sessions and slow jams during the week.
Instructors for 2014 included Martin Hayes, Liz Carroll, Kevin Crawford, Colin Farrell, Liz Knowles, Alastair McCulloch, Nuala Kennedy, John Skelton, John Doyle, Robin Bullock, Brian McNeill, Ed Miller, Billy Jackson, Andrew Finn Magill, Kathleen Conneely, Kimberley Fraser, Grainne Hambly, Len Graham, Eamon O’Leary, Cathie Ryan, Alan Reid, Marla Fibish, Donal Clancy, Cillian Vallely, Rose Flanagan, Matthew Olwell, Maldon Meehan, and John Whelan.
Congrats again to last year’s winners Leah and Chloe! If this sounds interesting to you, ask them about their experience.
You must be a current BRIMS student to apply and youth (under age 21) musicians and dancers are given priority. However, if we don’t have two applicants, we will award scholarships to adults who are interested in attending. For more information, please contact Lori Madden.
