8th October 2011


We again had  a fantastic line-up for Ceolas 2011. The opening concert kicked off on Sunday evening in St Peter’s Hall which included much of  the talent that is to be heard on the Island as well as some of the visiting tutors. The Piping concert on the Monday was outstanding  with  a feast of piping including Angus MacKenzie, Angus Nicolson, Fin Moore and Calum MacCrimmon. They also performed as the quartet  ‘Seudan’,  also Allan MacDonald, Andrea Boyd, Seonaidh MacIntyre and more…

The singing concert was led on Wednesday in Southend Hall by Rona Lightfoot, Mairead Stewart and Kathleen MacInnes with special guests.   Memorable for all performers and audience alike.

There was a dance in Eriskay Hall on Wednesday Evening.

Thursday saw the ever-popular Fiddle &; Dance night in St Peter’s hall.   The evening ran in two shifts with more people arriving as some were departing.   The sheer number of people who wanted to dance was in direct competition with the numbers who wanted to play for dancing.   It was a memorable evening – may we have many more to come!!

Friday the Ceilidh Mor was SOLD OUT – and no wonder with the level of talent performing.   Emma Mac Innes hosted the evening .

There were sessions throughout the week in various venues.


Video clips will be available soon.
