St James the Great C.C.E. branch aims to promote the traditional music, song and dance of Ireland in all its forms, as well as the Gaelic language.
We currently provide low-cost, expert tuition in fiddle, flute, tin-whistle, harp, piano accordion, button accordion, concertina, piano accompaniment, drums, bodhran, uilleann pipes, banjo & mandolin within the Pollok area. We also host traditional singing classes and organise ceili bands and grupai cheoil at a number of age groups levels.
Our classes are open to all ages and abilities, and we teach in small, ability-based groups ranging from beginner to advanced level. The majority of our students are children and teenagers from the local area, who without access to our classes would be very unlikely to have access to expert traditional music lessons.
