TUATH: Songs of the Northlands
by Brian Ó hEadhra and Fiona Mackenzie
Highland based duo, Brian Ó hEadhra and Fiona Mackenzie, present an intimate show featuring songs from their acclaimed, recently released albums TÌR - Highland Life & Lore and TUATH - Songs of the Northlands. TÌR explores traditional and contemporary life and stories from the Highlands of Scotland. TUATH is a musical and cultural exploration of the connections between the Gaels and our nearest Atlantic neighbours.
The duo will provide introductions and read translations of the songs, which are mostly in Scottish Gaelic, but also in Irish Gaelic, English and Norwegian. A show not to be missed!
Filmed at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
