This fine young singer from South Uist has won both Gold Medals at the National Mod.

Here Gillebrìde Macmillan presents a selection with a strong Uist bias, ranging from the songs of Bàird Baile or village poets, to those of the better known songwriters from the islands.

He is accompanied by Mary Ann Kennedy, Aaron Jones, Allan Henderson, Rachel Walker, Angus MacPhail, James Graham and his sister, Mairi.

“I still vividly remember the day that I decided that I wanted to start singing again. I had sung as a child and after winning both main prizes for children at the Royal National Mod in Dingwall I decided to retire for a while. I had not sung in public since I was 13, and I was 21 when my desire to sing returned. I had just returned home from university and on the radio was the Mod Traditional Gold Medal Final. It was the infamous Skye mòd when the awful weather meant that the final had to be delayed. That very day, listening to the radio, I felt that I wanted to be involved in such a thing. A couple of weeks later, I phoned Ishabel T. MacDonald to ask if she would teach me songs. I can say that really, since that day that I have been learning songs and enjoying my singing. For the 7 years that I’ve been singing as an adult I’ve been lucky enough to sing in many countries and places.” (Gillebrìde Macmillan)
