Duilich nach eil mi air a bhith a sgrìobhadh rud eil. Tha mi an dochas rud eile sgrìobhadh a dh'aithghearr. Airson an drast' seo orain eile. Tha mi an dochas gun còrd iad ruibh.
Here we are on a cold an wet October day at the halfway mark of this project. So far I've been singing old favorites, dusting off songs I haven't sung in a while and learning a new verse here and there. Soon I will have to head into the unknown and learn some totally new songs. As such I welcome, very much so, any suggestions you have. So if you have a favorite Gaelic song that I haven't done yet let me know in the comments. :) Thanks.
Many apologies for the gap in blog post and especially the 100 oran project. Now that all the new classes have started and the trip to the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival is done things are settling down again. So here are a few more songs
This first one An Innis Aigh, is one of my favorite Gaelic songs from Nova Scotia. If I remember correctly it was written by Angus MacLelland about Margaree Island where he was a lighthouse keeper.
I've always liked Leis an Luragainn it has a great tune and the last three are waulking songs.
