Fisean nan Gaidheal - Fis Cilidh Trails

Fèisean nan Gaidheal - Fèis Cèilidh Trails

Bha a' chiad Cèilidh air Chuairt air a stèidheachadh le Fèis Rois ann an 1999 airson taic a thoirt do luchd-ciùil òga na sgilean cluiche aca a leasachadh agus airson prògram de cheòl traidiseanta, beòthail a chruthachadh air a' Ghaidhealtachd. 'S e inneal sònraichte a tha seo a' toirt cothrom do dheugairean trèanadh fhaighinn ann an cuid de na sgilean a fheumadh a bhith aca airson beò-shlàint a dhèanamh ann an ceòl traidiseanta no ann an gnìomhachas a' chiùil.

Gabhaibh an cothrom cuid de na seinneadairean agus luchd-ciùil òga as fheàrr bho na Fèisean a chluinntinn air slighean nan cèilidhean.

The first Cèilidh Trail project, established by Fèis Rois in 1999, was designed to help teenage musicians develop their performance skills and to create a vibrant traditional music entertainment programme in the Highlands.

Over the years, the project has been replicated in other areas and has proved to be an overwhelming success.

Make sure you take the opportunity to see and hear some of the best young singers and musicians from Fèisean across Scotland in the Cèilidh Trails.

Far, Far From Ypres - The Stage Production

Far, Far From Ypres - The Stage Production

Far Far From Ypres was originally conceived as a celebration of World War One songs and poems, mainly Scottish, for a double album on Greentrax Recordings. It evolved into a stage production at the 2012 and 2014 Celtic Connections Festivals where it was described by the Festival Director, Donald Shaw, as "brilliant".

The show will be presented again in 2014 at The Queen's Hall, Edinburgh at 8pm on Sunday 17th August and at Perth Concert Hall at 7.30pm on Saturday 30th August.

The show features the large screen projection of relevant images throughout the evening enhancing greatly the audience's understanding of the story unfolding before them. The format of the evening takes the form of two fifty minute halves with an interval. It has a cast of 26 folk singing stars, who remain on stage throughout the performance, singing the "trench", "marching" and Music Hall songs of the time. From that chorus, groups and soloists come to the middle of the stage and perform songs, both contemporary and traditional, about the Great War.

The narrator, Iain Anderson, brilliantly links the songs with stories about the hero of the show, Jimmy MacDonald, who was born in "any village in Scotland". It tells of Jimmy's recruitment and training then follows his journey to the Somme and back to Scotland. It would not be a Scottish tragedy without laughter, so there are also stories of humour and joy that take this production well away from the path of unremitting gloom.

Written and directed by Ian McCalman, this production features 26 folk stars, which has included Dick Gaughan, Iain Anderson, Barbara Dickson, Sangsters, Ian Bruce, Siobhan Miller, Ian McCalman, Stevie Palmer, Stephen Quigg, Ragged Glory, Sineag MacIntyre, Soopna, Donald Hay, Drew Talbot, Dennis Wilson, Brian Miller, Tom Ward and a host of others.
