Ex­cite­ment builds for Glas­gow Skye events

The Oban Times - - News - ROBERT ROBERTSON robert.d.robertson@hot­mail.co.uk

THERE is just over a week to go un­til the most an­tic­i­pated as­so­ci­a­tion event of the year - the Glas­gow Skye’s 150th an­nual gath­er­ing.

The gath­er­ing, on Fri­day De­cem­ber 4, will fea­ture an ar­ray of singers and mu­si­cians from the is­land per­form­ing at the con­cert, which be­gins at 7.30pm in Glas­gow Univer­sity Union.

Trail West will play for danc­ing from 10.30pm to 2pm.

The evening is go­ing to be spe­cial in­deed, show­ing all the gen­er­a­tions of Skye Gaelic singers.

There are no less than 17 Mòd Gold Medal­lists from the is­land tak­ing to the stage - some of whom sang 50 years ago at the 100th gath­er­ing - and some of whom are a fair bit younger than that.

Last week, I in­cluded the gath­er­ing poster in this col­umn and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a line-up that has got me so ex­cited for a con­cert.

The com­mit­tee has been putting in a power of work all year to mark the as­so­ci­a­tion’s an­niver­sary, which in­cluded a fan­tas­tic din­ner in the City Cham­bers ear­lier in the year.

It has all been build­ing up to the gath­er­ing - which will be one fi­nal Glas­gow Skye birth­day party of 2015.

Ticket sales have been go­ing ex­tremely well for the gath­er­ing.

To get your hands on yours, con­tact John Robertson on 07768 058139.

Glas­gow Skye nights are al­ways good, but this one is to­tally unmissable.
