What is Ceol Aneas?
New Zealand's premiere Irish music event, Ceol Aneas is one of Australasia's major Irish music gatherings, attracting musicians and traditional Irish music lovers from around New Zealand and overseas.
Similar to the traditional Irish music summer schools in Ireland, the Ceol Aneas festival programme features a ceili dance on Saturday night, a highlight concert Sunday night featuring all the tutors.
There are also numerous traditional Irish music ‘sessions'. There is no charge to enter venues and sessions run on into the wee, small hours.
Register for Ceol Aneas 2022
Instrumental classes open to intermediate and advanced students.
For lovers of Irish music, but not registered for the weekend's tuition, there is still lots to join in with.
The showcase concert featuring each of the tutors is a highlight of the festival. There is a family fun ceili dance on the Saturday night for those who want to dance the night away.
The sessions are a great event to come along to, have a pint and hear some fantastic music.
