Ceilidh na Gaidhlig
Maggie January 20, 2016

The new monthly event Cèilidh na Gàidhlig will include Gaelic drama, Gaelic songs and music. January’s ceilidh will be in Ionad nan Seann Sgoile Siabost on Friday 29th at 7.30pm.

The evening’s entertainment will include two new short plays performed by Cabraich Community Arts members, Ali MacLennan and Maggie Smith. The plays are Tom ’s Jerry by Alasdair a Bhocsair, Ness and An Turas by Eric J MacDonald, Uig.

The all Gaelic event will be in a different area each month and include Gaelic singers and musicians who are living locally. Future dates are The Hut, Back on Friday 26th February and Museum nan Eilean on Friday 11th March, with April and May cèilidhs in Grinneabhat and Gearrannan.

Cabraich Community Arts spokesperson said “The group have been performing plays by island writers on local historical and contemporary themes, for the over 60s groups, for a number of years. The new event Cèilidh na Gàidhlig has several targets: to strengthen the use of Gaelic in the communities, to bring drama to a new audience and to enable Gaelic learners to be immersed in the language and island culture for an evening.

We are working with other community groups, who have a strong interest in maintaining the Gaelic language in each area; Clann an La an De Siabost, Iomairt Gàidhlig a Loch a Tuath Am Bac and the new Gaelic Museum nan Eilean at Lews Castle. Cabraich are grateful for the support of Bòrd na Gàidhlig and CNES”
