Talent shines through at Fèis
DRAMA, dance and singing talent shone through at Fèis Nan Garbh Chrìochan 2017.
More than 100 children attended the five- day event at Acharacle Primary School.
The Fèis, which catered for children from primary four and upwards, celebrated its 27th year, offering youngsters tuition from expert tutors in a variety of instruments, Gaelic singing, drama and dance.
There was also a fun Gaelic workshop for children from primary one and pre-school. Fèis administrator Amie MacMaster, told the
Lochaber Times: ‘Fèis Nan Garbh Chrìochan 2017 was very well attended with 86 children from P4 to S4 attending the main Fèis from Monday July 17 to Friday July 21 and 30 between Fèis Bheag for P1-3 and our new Fèis Beag Bìodach for nursery aged children from Tuesday July 18 Friday July 21. We had a great bunch of tutors for the week who showcased their talents at Wednesday night’s concert and for the family dance on Thursday. Friday afternoon’s concert let our wonderful participants show what they’d been learning before our family ceilidh and finale dance to round things off on Friday night. There are too many supporters to mention -Taing mhòr dhuibh uile.’
