About Cascadia Irish Music Week scholarships

 

Every year we offer a certain number of scholarships to young musicians, depending on the funding available. We offer classes in fiddle, flute, concertina, button accordion, tenor banjo, tin whistle and guitar, taught by some of the world’s best performers on those instruments. We're looking for talented musicians ages 12 to 21 who have some experience playing Irish traditional music and who would benefit from meeting and working with our teachers.

 

Scholarships for 2016 have all been awarded. If you're interested in applying for a scholarship for 2017 please email us at scholarships@cascadiairish.org and we will email you when the application period opens in January.
