Dance in the Car Park

06/05/2017 Leave a comment

There was a warm welcome back to Uist for Will Lamb and Naomi Harvey this weekend, when they led a “Danns’ ri Puirt” workshop at Talla Chàirinis in North Uist – so warm, in fact, that they held it in the car park rather than inside the hall! It was part of the Ceòlas annual Òran ’s Fonn song festival, which stretches over three days.

In this clip Will and Naomi talk, in Gaelic and English, about their research collaboration, and how they’re seeking to put it to practical effect, by actually trying out putting singing and dancing together. You can also get a taste of the workshop itself, as Liam Alastair Crouse, from Ceòlas, and visiting students on the Gaelic Immersion for Teachers course at the University of Strathclyde willingly put theory to test…

DIY Music Video

musiccourseHowmore resident Julie Lewis attended a video-making workshop at Cothrom last year, and learnt some handy new skills.

Some years previously, and shortly after it was launched, Julie was also a student on the local college music course in Benbecula – a subject area which has since gone from strength to strength, developing into a University of the Highlands and Islands degree course in Applied Music.

Here’s the video that Julie made about the course. Great work all round!

Here he talks to Gordon Wells in Gaelic about his Rhode Island background and his interests in Gaelic and Archaeology. He then goes on to explain a bit about his job and what his hopes are for it.

He is keen to meet and talk to anyone in the community with an interest in Gaelic. He gives his e-mail contact details at the end of the interview.

You can also read more about his posting on the Ceòlas website here.

Eairdsidh Caimbeul à Beinn na Faoghla

EairdsidhRuevalTha Eairdsidh Caimbeul, à Beinn na Faoghla, air a bhith a’ toirt taic dhan phròiseict Guthan nan Eilean ann an iomadach dòigh bhon a thòisich sinn. Agus ‘s e a bha cuideachail a-rithis air an t-seachdain sa chaidh nuair a thadhail na h-Èireannaich oirnn. Tha e an comhnaidh deònach Gàidhlig a bhruidhinn, rud nach eil furasta uaireannan le luchd-ionnsachaidh a tha dìreach air tòiseachadh air a’ chànan. Agus tha clasaichean air a bhith aige air feadh nan eilean – clasaichean Ùlpan nam measg.

Seo e ma tha, a’ bruidhinn agus a’ beachdachadh air an turas a bh’ aige gu Èirinn an uiridh, agus air na tha ri fhaicinn agus ri dhèanamh air an eilean aige fhèin…
