Hebridean Women

Hebridean Women

As part of Bealach, An Lanntair’s Creative Places award, the organisation have created a special event to celebrate the festival’s 21st birthday. Hebridean Women will feature traditional Gaelic singers from throughout the Hebrides and focus on songs for and about women.

The project has been designed to encourage collaboration, promote the music and song from the area, but also, and importantly, to provide a “master and apprentice” style of working, with singers chosen from all generations.

This special night will feature Julie Fowlis, Kathleen Macinnes, Cathie Ann Macphee, Isobel Ann Martin and Mary Smith.

This show will be followed by a Ceilidh Dance to Islands Ceilidh Band which is included in the price of the ticket.

Accompanying the ladies and keeping it ‘Hebridean’ will be Alex Tearse (Keyboards), Norrie MacIver (Guitar) and James Mackenzie (Pipes/Whistle/Flute).

The concert is now sold out, ceilidh dance tickets still available.
