I really enjoyed the challenge of writing a blog post everyday for Mìos na Gàidhlig and I have been thinking about what my next challenge/project could be.
The huge amounts of Gaelic music I listened to while driving gave me an idea: I will post Gaelic songs. My goal is to post 100 songs.
So here are the rules I've set myself: I will post at least 4 songs a week, I have to be able to sing at least 3 verses of a song with out looking at the words for it to count (or the whole thing for shorter songs). I am going to start with the ones I know really well and see how far that gets me, then I'll have to go to the ones that I only kinda know, learn a few more verses and polish them up a bit and I'm sure by the end I will be needing to learn a few more Gaelic songs to make it to 100. I'll try to get to 50 songs by Halloween and 100 songs before Christmas. Wish me luck and please share your favorite Gaelic songs. :)
