 This is the tenth anniversary event and here are this years participants.

 There are two new teachers in 2010: Téada's Tristan Rosenstock and Uiscedwr's Cormac Byrne! Add  Junior Davey, Jim Higgins, Siobhan O'Donnell, Stiofan O'Brion and Rolf Wagels and you will see that this years teachers board again covers a variety of styles and approaches in bodhrán playing.


There will be two great concerts one featuring one of Ireland leading trad bands Téada who were just awarded best 'Best Young Irish Traditional Act' at the 'Ireland's Music Awards'. The other concert will be by Éalú and guests, people who have been to Craiceann before will recognize most of the musicians in this upcoming new and exciting band, since Ryan Murphy, Cillian King and Dermot Sheedy are regular visitors to Inisheer during Craiceann.
