Ceòl Cho­lasa fes­ti­val was an out­stand­ing suc­cess story

The Oban Times - - YOUR VIEWS -

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.
