Join the Ceilidh Trail

Our Ceilidh Trail will be hitting the road again in 2022! Although we are not taking applications for this year, we are looking forward to our young musicians getting out and about and performing in front of live audiences once again. More information about our 2022 Ceilidh Trail line-up and performance dates coming soon.

The Ceilidh Trail is a paid summer job and professional development opportunity for outstanding young traditional musicians. We work with musicians between 16 and 25 who spend the summer playing music, travelling throughout Scotland and beyond, and gain experience playing for just about every kind of gig under the sun!  

In the past, Ceilidh Trail participants have had the opportunity to collaborate with musicians from Australia, Canada, England and Wales who come on exchanges with us during the summer. Participants also take part in a training week before the tour begins, where they take part in workshops about live sound, performance skills and dance calling, and work in groups to arrange a varied set of tunes and songs. 

If you have any questions about the Ceilidh Trail or want to ask about any accessibility requirements, please get in touch with Christian Gamauf.
