Oidhreacht an Chláir was launched in 2003 with the aim of conserving and promoting the traditional arts in their native environment. Based at its permanent headquarters, Áras OaC in Miltown Malbay Co. Clare, our fully refurbished residence is next door to the one-time home of the renowned uillean piper, Willie Clancy (1918-1973). Miltown is the venue for the annual Summer School dedicated to his memory.
OaC Master Classes in Traditional Music Series
Oidhreacht an Chláir is promoting a new major initiative: a master class series in Irish Traditional music, which will start off with master musician Noel Hill’s Concertina master class on the weekend of 3rd, 4th and 5th of February, 2012, at Āras OaC, Flag Rd, Miltown Malbay, Co Clare. This is an intensive course aimed at the advanced and advanced-intermediate student, with a concentration on style, phrasing and fingering technique. Places on the course are limited and early booking is essential. The fee of €150 includes tuition, free admission to the Noel Hill concert on Friday 3rd, and lunch on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th.
