The Acadia Trad Festival
June 24 – June 29, 2018
Held annually the last week in June on the beautiful campus of the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, the Acadia Trad Festival summer music school is the core program offered by the Acadia School of Traditional Music and Arts. The Acadia Trad Festival is a jam-packed week of classes, concerts and jam sessions in the Irish, Scottish, Acadian, Cajun, Old-Time and Cape Breton styles. Our world-class Faculty and instructors teach programs for fiddle, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, cello, piano, piano accordion, banjo, uilleann pipes, whistle, bodhran, dance, song, Celtic culture, and much, much more. Faculty, class offerings and genres vary each year, so you’ll be sure to get a lot of variety if you come back Festival after Festival.

Adults, teens, children, families — students of all ages and abilities are welcome. Full time students spend the week in intensive studies, sessions, and fun. If you can’t spend the whole week with us, you can pick and choose among a large selection of afternoon workshops or attend any of a dozen concerts over the course of the week.

Students at the Acadia Trad Festival can expect an experience like no other. With nearly 20 major courses of study, countless workshops, twice daily concerts and continual jam-sessions, traditional music will surround you. The classes are intense, but paced for a variety of learning levels. Students will learn by ear, although in some cases music is provided. You will study, listen, jam and socialize with world-class faculty and fellow students and make lasting friendships.

With the Acadia Trad School’s guarantee and commitment to quality, we guarantee that you will have a great time. If at the end of the week you really feel like you did not get your money’s worth out of our program, we will happily refund your course tuition fees.
