Vic Folk Music

Vic Folk offers opportunities for students to learn, play and dance to traditional Irish and Scottish music.

We host ceilidhs, sessions, concerts and workshops, and a festival in trimester 2.

We welcome new and experienced musicians, and offer a platform for musicians to organise events.

We have fortnightly practices during term time where you can learn the music, and a range of workshops during the year.

Although we do host concerts, our music making is usually more informal: sessions and ceilidhs are at the heart of it. In a session, musicians sit around a table and generally pick up the music by ear. There aren’t any set lists or arrangements, and the emphasis is on listening to those around you. A ceilidh (pronounced kaylee) is more of a party: the word means ‘get-together’ in Gaelic. As with sessions, the emphasis is not on performing but on sharing the experience of live music, and it's the easiest and most fun dancing you'll find anywhere.
