Gaelic Workshops

 

Gaelic Lessons

Gaelic Workshops introduce the language through basic phrases and songs. We welcome learners of all ages to small-group workshops. We also have occasional weekends workshops featuring one or two guests, which focus more on songs in their cultural context and in the evening a ceilidh that is usually open to the public. The cost for the weekend includes the ceilidh and lunch on Saturday. There are occasional 'work placements' for students or young people who want to help and also participate. .

Margaret Bennett

There can be few scholars on either side of the Atlantic who succeed in combining such a wide range of skills as Margaret Bennett. A folksinger of great sensitivity and versatility, she is undoubtedly one of the major figures of the modern Scottish Revival... Margaret embodies all that is best of the spirit of Scotland"
