Our New Web Site is Coming Soon

Song Writing Retreat on the Ring of Kerry

We're busy beavering away behind here getting the website and the Retreat ready, but in the meantime, this is the story.


Peace & Tranquility

The little white dot in the distance which you can see in the photograph below is our place, where you can come and devote some time to your song-writing. You can't see another house from here, but we are only ten minutes from Kenmare, heritage town and foodie paradise.

Recording Studio

If you'd like to do some recording, or would like some help with your songs, my studio and I are right next door. This is a link to an extract from 'The Mike Harding Folk Show - the very best in folk, roots and acoustic music' which features a single recently released by my band, 'blackmailed & bereft'.

This demonstrates the quality of production we can achieve on the CD of your song that you take home.

Our other Music Holidays

As well as song writing vacations, we also run holidays where you can learn to play the Irish fiddle at Kerry Fiddles. For guitar players we have standard guitar courses where you can improve your skills or you can also learn to play guitar in DADGAD tuning.
