Ceòlas Uibhist will mark the 2020 summer school, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, with a virtual An Cèilidh Mòr on Friday, 10 July at 9pm.
The concert, which will feature past and present tutors from the school, will premiere on Facebook and Youtube. Ceòlas will set up a page for donations.
Throughout June, highlights of past summer school concerts from the Ceòlas archive will be posted on Ceòlas’ social media accounts weekly.
In the meantime, Ceòlas has continued its development work in preparation for the transition to Cnoc Soilleir. Construction on site will shortly restart in line with Scottish Government guidance.
Ceòlas successfully secured £116,155 from the Scottish Government’s Aspiring Communities Fund for the next 2 years. The funding will go towards the creation of several new positions with a focus on expanding the organisation’s arts and dance profile and partnership work.
An Cèilidh Mòr has received support from Creative Scotland, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, HIE and LEADER Innse Gall.
