Comunn Féis Mhàbu's "Eirich Air!" is an eight week Gaelic song mentorship program that invites members of the Gaelic song community and Gaelic tradition bearer guests to act as Gaelic song mentors. In order to create an authentic learning opportunity, the sessions were held in homes in the community to bring Gaelic language learning and Gaelic song learning together in a natural and communal fashion.
Comunn Féis Mhàbu's Musical Mentorship Program for youth musicians is an eight week program that uses house sessions to bring together talented young performers of Cape Breton music and dance with well established tradition bearers. The relaxed, informal atmosphere of the sessions is well suited for the passing on of music, dance and stories.
