Sgeulachdan Thormoid: Mìorbhailtean ann am Barraigh

Fans of Norman Maclean are in for a treat! Norman recently invited Gordon Wells over to his house to hear and record a selection of Gaelic stories, related in his trademark style. What a privilege!

In his words of introduction, Norman explains his reasons for wanting to make the recordings, and expresses the hope they may be of use to learners.

The Guthan nan Eilean/Island Voices project is only too pleased to help by placing them online. They will make a fantastic addition to the ever-growing collection of locally sourced recordings that capture Gaelic as it is spoken.

Here’s Norman’s introduction.

And here’s his story of “Miracles in Barra” – a taste of things to come…

Watch this space!

Update: All recordings in both the “Saoghal Thormoid” and “Sgeulachdan Thormoid” collections are now available on the “Norman Maclean” page.

    This is the language of my great great grandfather Savage who died when I was eight years old. I live in the United States and he died in the seventies. Listening to you speak, Sir , I thought back to a day long ago in a nursing home room where we were visiting him. He came from the Isle of Man and lived to be well over 100 . Your voice reminds me of him though I could scarce understand you at first. Thanks for telling this story and making me remember my great great grandad .
