World-class Instruction

The Acadia Trad Festival brings together some of the most renowned performers in the world. But they are more than performers — they are talented, passionate educators as well. Faculty teach morning major classes as well as afternoon workshops. Workshop Instructors only teach in the afternoon. Please see our Classes, Workshops & Sessions page for more information.
