Cascadia Irish Music Week 2022

Please note that some classes have reached capacity and are closed to further registrations. If a class appears in the schedule but not on the registration page, the class is full. To be placed on the waiting list for a class please email

Also note that we will follow Evergreen’s Covid-19 protocols, which as of now require proof of vaccination, indoor masking, etc. Also we plan to hold some classes and activities outdoors. We’ll post updates here, on our Facebook page, and by email.

Registration is now open for Cascadia Irish Music Week 2022. The dates are Sun, Aug 7 - Sat, Aug 13, 2022 at The Evergreen State College (TESC), Olympia, Washington. Please read through the information on this page before submitting your registration. If you have questions not answered here, please email us.

Please note: Tuition, lodging and meals must be booked through us on this website, not through the college.

Please note: Video recording is NOT allowed in any classes. Audio recording allowed if the teacher permits it.

Lodgings - Our lodgings for the week are in Evergreen's lovely apartment buildings. Each building has three floors, and on each floor are several private rooms with locking doors, plus a shared kitchen area and bathrooms. Unfortunately the range and microwave in these units are disabled during the summer, but there is a refrigerator in each kitchen area.

Couples: The Evergreen State College charges us by the person, rather than by the room, and each room has only a single bed. Let us know on the application form if you want to room near someone and we will aim to assign you rooms as close as possible.

These structures are tucked back in the woods and are very pleasant. You can read more about these lodgings and even take a panoramic tour of the rooms on the TESC website. If you're staying on-campus you'll also have access to the recreation center, and the lovely woods, trails and beaches adjoining the campus.

Meals - All meals are served in the dining Hall at TESC, "The Greenery". They can accommodate vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dietary needs. There is also an espresso shop on campus (not included in our meal plan) . . . two of them, in fact. If you don't choose the full meal plan, you can purchase individual meals in the Greenery depending on availability.
