Grandfather Mountain Gaelic Song and Language Week is a week-long workshop full of Gaelic-related classes revolving around three basic tracks:
- Language–using the actual language for communication
- Singing–everything from teaching songs to the history of songs to the details of ornamentation and technique
- Special Interest–where the instructors take a subject of which they are particularly fond and teach about that subject. As there are different teachers every year, these vary widely from year to year.
In the evening throughout the week various activities are scheduled, everything from a semi-informal Ceilidh to a silent auction to Gaelic-related movie/film night and a lot more.
