Roddy Shaw – “Harbour Master”
Roddy Shaw is another member of the popular and successful Sgioba Dràma Uibhist, first making an entrance on the local dramatic scene four years ago as the cailleach “Agnes”, for which part he was immediately awarded the “Best Actor” prize at the annual Royal National Mòd. Here he talks in Gaelic about this year’s production in which he played the Harbour Master, relates some of the many other successes of the team, and reveals plans for additional local performances and more filming activity too.
Roddy is also a skilled accordion-player and genial “fear an taighe” for community cèilidhs in Berneray, where Gaelic learners integrate with the rest of the community to chat and share songs, tunes, and stories.
