West End Fes­ti­val is in full flight

GLAS­GOW’S an­nual West End Fes­ti­val has been a great suc­cess this year – with a fan­tas­tic West High­land rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

On Satur­day June 18, the Kelv­in­grove band­stand was filled with the sounds of Gaelic Choirs who all col­lab­o­rated for a num­ber of songs as part of a con­cert called VOICE@ Kelv­in­grove Band­stand.

The band­stand is a prom­i­nent venue in the city, an open-air am­phithe­atre just off the Kelvin Walk­way in the heart of Kelv­in­grove Park, so to have Gaelic airs and puirt a beul soar­ing out from the stage can only have been a great thing for the pro­mo­tion of the Gaelic lan­guage and mu­sic in Glas­gow. Well done to all in­volved.

That same night, Gaelic ‘su­per group’ Daimh were play­ing along­side mu­sic and drama stu­dents of the Glas­gow Gaelic School in the CCA in an evening put on by Ceol ’s Craic and An Lochran. I was sorry to have been away from Glas­gow on Satur­day be­cause both sound like they were re­ally good events.
