Feis is kind of like a festival, we have it every year and they come to our school to let us try some instruments.  The first day, we got to play the Borran, fiddle and some of us even got to try the harp!  Some people also brought in their own instruments like the Accordion, the fiddle, the tin whistle and people who have knowledge about reading music, got to play the piano.  The next time they came over, we got to play the tin whistle, piano and the fiddle.  The Feis is a very fun thing to go to during the February break and lots of people take part in it.

Every year in the February break there is a 3 day workshop, which has many different instruments to learn or expand on what you already know. In the February break I went to Feis, I went to Tin whistle( that was taken by Fraser Shaw)Accordion(that was taken by Murdo) and there was Drama, that was taken by Mr Murray. We all came together at the end of the day and learn’ t a couple of songs, La Math( that was a song about LAMAS), and we were taught by Norrie from Manran. I had great fun we danced with Ray and sang with Norrie.

On Friday our last workshop, at night we put on a concert for all the parents to show what we had learn’ t in the 3 days of workshops, the tin whistle players played a Gaelic tune called Struagh nach do fhairich mi tioram air tir and The humors of Tulla. The Accordion players played Fairy Lullaby and Lovely Stornoway and Norrie’s choir sung a tune from RunRig, there was the younger kids from Feis Bheag performing with the choreography by Paula Davidson. There was many more performances. At the end of the concert we all went up onto the stage and sang our songs with Feis Bheag followed by a raffle.I really enjoyed it and will go back next year.
