Interested in learning Scottish Gaelic?
Interested in possibly participating in a Mod?
 
Frances Acar is taking new students who are interested in learning Gaelic language and song. She uses several methods to teach.  She does have regular classes, plus tutorial materials.  But if you have Internet access, you can also learn from her via Skype, or even digital sound files sent by e-mail.  You do not need to physically attend class.
 
The tutorial materials are available for anyone who might be interested in competing as a beginner in the next mod. The materials include a CD of the songs to be learned and song sheets of the Gaelic words and translations.
 
Apart from teaching Gaelic, she runs tutorial sessions throughout the year teaching the songs for the following year's mod. Class times by arrangement.  Contact her at the e-mail or telephone number above.  Again, beginners welcome.

THE AKRON CEILI BAND
 
Founded by Gordon Schaeffer, this grand group of musicians in Northeast Ohio (Akron, Canton & Cleveland areas) plays the lilting Celtic Music that finds a home in any of the seven Celtic Nations.  They have performed at our Beltane Festival and at our St. Andrews Dinner.  They love performing for the public and also at private events. Some of the members offer lessons, too. You will love hearing them as much as they enjoy performing.
