Every second year Camphill Dingle is organising and hosting an all inclusive music festival for everyone in Camphill Ireland who would like to play in an orchestra, whatever their ability, and for those who just want to come to support them and enjoy being together.
The 2009 and 2011 festivals were led by John Billing, with support of John Clark, Peggy Grimshaw, Martin Scharer (percussion), Gese Mucke and local dance teachers Catherine Merrigan (Irish and African dancing and Natalie (salsa).
Every day there were rehearsals in the Blasket Centre from 10.00 until 4.00 with entertainment arranged for some evenings including a concert of local musicians and Camphill talent.
We also made sure that we made a day available for all the participants to explore the locality and maybe have some individual rehearsals.
The whole week comes to a fantastic end with a performance open to the public.
