Work­shops and con­certs with fine Gaelic singers

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

ALSO as part of the West End Fes­ti­val, Mar­garet Stewart will host a work­shop called Òrain Sùirghe is Caithris na h-Òid­hche (songs of courtship and night vis­it­ing) on Wed­nes­day June 21 at 7pm in An Lèanag on Mans­field Street, Partick.

Spa­ces are lim­ited and the venue is small, so An Lòchran rec­om­mend book­ing your place in ad­vance. En­try is £4 or £2 for con­ces­sions. All ages are wel­come to this event - although I sup­pose that de­pends on how young you would wish your chil­dren to learn to sing about courtship and night-vis­it­ing.

The fol­low­ing night, Thurs­day June 22, Mar­garet is joined in con­cert by Kath­leen MacInnes and ‘Sian’ (Eilidh Cor­mack, Ellen MacDonald, and Ceitlin Smith) for an evening of Gaelic song fea­tur­ing songs of fe­male bàrds in the Kelvin­side Hill­head Par­ish Church on Ob­ser­va­tory Road.

All the singers will be ac­com­pa­nied by Jenn But­ter­worth and In­grid Hen­der­son. All five of those ladies are among my very favourite Gaelic singers so I think this will be a re­ally ex­cel­lent night.

Tick­ets are avail­able from eventbrite. com for £12. Stu­dent and OAP tick­ets are re­duced to £10 while chil­dren can get in for £7. A fam­ily ticket costs £ 30.

The fes­ti­val runs un­til Sun­day June 25.
