Festival Workshops & Lectures

The Austin Celtic Festival is proud to offer students and interested parties the chance to be directed and counseled by some of today's leading experts in Celtic music. In general our paid workshops, led by our headliners are casual, question and answer arenas for persons already familiar with the subject instrument and are looking for progressive instruction or a chance to ask more complex questions. You should also be prepared for practical application of a particular technique or style favored by the headlining instructor.

Direction and focus of the workshops can be fluid and develop based on the needs of the attending students. Although, they might not necessarily be needed, a well prepared student will have their instrument, pen and paper and a recorder with them. These workshops are limited to a smaller number to be more effective. Novice or beginners may purchase tickets and attend as observers.


  • You must purchase a ticket to the festival in addition to the workshop fee.
  • Print out the email confirmation page from paypal as proof of payment for the workshop.
  • No unattended children at the workshops or on the festival grounds.
  • Please refrain from trafficking in and out of the workshops out of respect for the instructors.
