“Blas is one of the best experiences I've had. It gave me the opportunity to make friends from several nations and a wide variety of ages, work with some of Ireland's greatest musicians, and immersed me in Irish music. I met people I know I'll continue friendships with and talk to for a long time. The faculty at Blas were wonderful and helpful. I one hundred percent recommend this program!”
