New recordings of Gaelic songs made available for World Gaelic Week

Ten new recordings of Gaelic songs have been added to the Fuaran project, established by Fèisean nan Gàidheal to encourage a new generation of Gaelic speakers and singers to actively engage in the research and collection of Gaelic songs in their local area.


Published to coincide with Seachdain na Gàidhlig (World Gaelic Week), the recordings feature six young people aged between 16 and 25 who took part in the fourth series of Fuaran in 2023.  


The six participants were Shannon MacLean (Mull), Mirren Ward (Glasgow), Iris MacLeod (Edinburgh), Caitlin Yule (Cumbernauld), Aileas MacLeod (Isle of Skye), and Eilidh MacPhee (Inverness). Their new recordings, with each song captured on video, have been added to the Fuaran archive which now consists of more than 100 songs, a valuable resource for local Fèisean and anyone interested in Gaelic song. 


Fèisean nan Gàidheal's Development Officer, Abi Reid, who managed the project said: "It was a pleasure to work on the Fuaran project with such a lovely group.  I was enjoyable to see their research come together over the months and we had a great, creative weekend in Cromarty last August.   I'm really happy the videos are now online and hope the singers are feeling extremely proud of their achievements."
