June 12-14th, 2009
University of New Mexico, Albuquerque

Due to the impending acquisition of the College of Santa Fe by New Mexico Highlands University, ZoukFest World Music Camp will not be held at the CSF campus this summer (the weeklong world music camp will return in 2010). This year, ZoukFest presents an Irish Traditional Music Weekend on June 12-14th on the campus of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.

This special event kicks off on Friday evening June 12th with a Reception, Dinner, Introductory Staff Performance, and Seisiún.

The fun continues throughout the day on Saturday, June 13th with over a dozen different Irish music workshops in Fiddle, Flute, Tin Whistle,
Mandolin, Tenor Banjo, Bouzouki, Guitar, Song and Bodhran (Irish frame drum). Each workshop is two hours in length.

Saturday evening will feature a Staff Concert with master fiddler/guitarist Randal Bays, uilleann pipes/flute/tin whistle phenom Eliot Grasso, stunning singer Moira Smiley and bouzouki/mandolin/tenor banjo master Roger Landes.

The weekend concludes with more workshops on Sunday morning, June 14th. Admission to the weekend event, including all events: Friday evening,
Saturday workshops, Saturday night’s concert, and Sunday workshops, is $95. Out-of-town attendees may opt to stay in campus dorms or at a
nearby hotel (with a special ZoukFest rate).

Admission to individual workshops and tickets to Saturday’s evening concert will be available.

Workshop descriptions and schedule as well as the registration page coming soon!

Mark your calendars for June 12-14, 2009!!!
