Song

Alasdair C Whyte, Cathy Ann MacPhee, Mary Jane Lamond

Gaelic song forms from a range of traditions, styles and registers, from lullabies to puirt-à-beul to waulking songs. (First & second choice.)

Mary Jane LamondA Tradition Remembered; songs of the Hebrides sung in Cape Breton and the bardic tradition continued.  This year, Mary Jane will focus on some of the songs collected by John Lorne Campbell that reflect the South Uist and Barra traditions and also explore some of the local poetry from the Grand Mira area in Cape Breton which was composed by bards from South Uist, Benbecula, and some who came in from Inverness county due their Clan Ranald connections ( i.e. Donald MacLellan, whose work was published in “Fàilte Cheap Breatuinn”).
