2020 Year of Coasts & Waters

With support from the Scottish Government, Fèisean nan Gàidheal is expanding the Fuaran collection with the addition of songs connected to the 2020 themed Year of Coasts and Waters.  

We are working with Gaelic song expert, Jo MacDonald, to feature a song each week throughout the year with information on the writer/composer, places named in the song and highlighting connections to Fèisean in the area from which the song originates. An image by Cailean Maclean will accompany each song and there will be links to existing recordings. Better still, there will be new video and audio recordings of each song.

As this is a Gaelic resource, please click on ‘Gàidhlig’ at the top right-hand side of the menu and you will be directed to the section of the website where these songs may be accessed.

We hope you get enjoyment and a little additional knowledge from listening to the songs and reading about them.
