Pot Luck Playlist
Congratulations to Mary Morrison on organising two very well attended community events in North Uist this week. Mary had the imagination and foresight to record two well-known raconteurs and singers and use their stories or songs as a stimulus for the pupils of Carinish and Lochmaddy primary schools to compose their own poems.
There were many highlights to each evening, including live re-tellings of the stories by the original storytellers as well as recitals of the new poetry and sundry musical performances, either by the pupils themselves or other community members or visitors. Topped off with the best of Uist home-baking!
Island Voices has had to start off a new playlist to accommodate all these songs and stories. It’s called “Pot Luck” and Mary’s hand can be detected in each video. Perhaps there are more to come still…
