Thank you to everyone who supported our first ever Virtual Fèis Rois Weekend, which took place 1st – 3rd May 2020. We received an amazing £14,723 in donations!
- Some 2,600 of you joined us live to participate in the workshops and view the concerts in real time. This is ten times the number of people we can take on our Adult Fèis course in Ullapool.
- The videos were then viewed 50,000+ times in the fortnight after the event.
- You spent 250,000 minutes (more than 4,000 hours!) going over the workshops on Facebook!
You can re-live our Tutor Concert here:
Highland fiddle player extraordinaire, Lauren MacColl, very kindly composed a tune to be auctioned at our Virtual Fèis Weekend back in May. The winning bidder, who wishes to remain anonymous, generously donated £700 to Fèis Rois and the tune is now called A Tune For Jean.
Lauren will teach this tune by ear at a gentle Sunday pace at 2pm on Sunday 30th August. Join us over at our Facebook page on http://www.facebook.com/feisrois.
