Come and join us in celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Scotland in music and language from across the generations.
This afternoon concert will feature youngsters from Fèis an Iar Dheas (Festival of the South and West) Scotland’s newest and most southerly Fèis. It is a festival of traditional music, culture and language carried out in an easy, non-competitive way with fun and games included, offering traditional music tuition and a Gaelic arts experience to young people.
This amazing day is coordinated by Angela Pearcey and check out our facebook page for more info on this year`s event on Saturday, October 28th @feisaniardheas
Joining the region`s young talent will be the slightly more mature delights of Na Seinneadairean (The Singers) a Gaelic Song choir led by Nicola Black and comprising enthusiasts with a love of the language and its rich song repertoire. Another group who enjoy making music together is The Borders Strathspey and Reel Society led by Barbara Lewis, whose motto is 'Keeping the traditional music of Scotland alive' and the society believes that Scottish music should be played with enthusiasm and drive so that the audience will enjoy the music as much as the players do.
Completing this extravaganza of Scots and Gaelic delights are members of the Dumfries and Galloway Branch of the Clarsach Society. The Scottish Harp has seen a huge revival over the past 40 years with more makers and players than at any time in history. From its ancient roots on Pictish stones, it is now heard throughout the world and has a repertoire to match. The local branch of this UK wide organization is coordinated by Wendy Stewart and has Harpers from 8 to 80!
