The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

OBAN Gaelic Choir sang for the first time since the re­cent Royal Na­tional Mòd in Stornoway when they per­formed as part of a ceilidh at Ap­pin’s Crea­gan Inn.

The gath­er­ing was or­gan­ised by choir con­duc­tor Sileas Sin­clair, who also in­vited a few of her young ac­cor­dion pupils to come along and join more sea­soned per­form­ers on an in­for­mal pro­gramme.

From seven-year- old singers Bethan Neil and Alice Macdon­ald to ceilidh leg­end Neil Sin­clair, the mix of mu­si­cians was hugely ap­pre­ci­ated by the au­di­ence.

A strong con­tin­gent from Lochaber Gaelic Choir was also in at­ten­dance to show sup­port and their mem­bers joined the Oban cho­ris­ters in Gaelic choir songs.

Crea­gan Inn co- owner Dun­can MacCorquo­dale said the res­tau­rant and bar was de­lighted to host the event, adding: ‘How of­ten can you hear this much tal­ent in the one place? Well done to Sileas and the choir for putting to­gether such a bril­liant night.’

A raf­fle on the night was held in aid of choir funds. Oban Gaelic Choir’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing will be held on Mon­day Novem­ber 21.
