Guthan Bheàrnaraigh – Berneray Voices

Berneray and other Island Voices mingled harmoniously on Friday night (26th November) at a cèilidh in the Lobster Pot – where Archie Campbell runs his weekly class for Gaelic learners on the island. The “Berneray Voices” project, with help from Bòrd na Gàidhlig, hosted this event aimed at bringing learners and fluent speakers together.

Take your pick of the following sound files to get a taste of how it went.

    Hi, just been listening to the recording of the ceilidh in the Lobster pot, fantastic to hear the old gaelic songs and the familiar voices. Made me feel very homesick. Well done and keep it up.
