Gaelic music in Scotland has a long tradition of different types of songs, sung everywhere from casual living room ceilidhs to the Royal National Mòd in choirs and solo performances. This workshop will explore a few types of common Gaelic song structures like waulking songs and puirt a beul, their history, common song subjects, and with a chance to learn a song to take with you wherever you go. Gaelic is a living language, and M Evan MacGriogair is a fluent speaker who sings with Còisir Alba and Ceòlraidh Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu as well as working on new projects.
Warm up your vocal chords! Attendees should be muted for the bits where we are singing together, but there will be time to ask questions about the content and pronunciation of the lyrics. Willingness to explore new sound. Attendees can participate wherever they are comfortable singing- need means of reading the material (either printed out or on a tablet) I will provide audio-visual materials in large print
