Ceòl Cholasa festival was an outstanding success story
I am writing to let your readership know about this year’s outstanding Ceòl Cholasa festival, which has recently ended. Debate organiser Keir Johnston, ably assisted by Liam and Caitlin McNeill, managed to attract Tide Lines, a huge name in the Scottish music business. Their vibrant performance was a treat to behold.
Also very popular were The Young ‘Uns and Whyte. The former, a trio of acapella singers, moved many to tears of sadness, swiftly followed by tears of hilarity. Whyte offered ancient Gaelic laments accompanied by an audio visual display that will live long in the memory.
The three-day feast of music attracted visitors by the score to the Isle of Colonsay. I commend Ceòl Cholasa to your readers and encourage the to come along next September. Scott Weatherstone, Goirtean, Isle of Colonsay.
