We had a fantastic week of music, song and craic at this, our first Cultural Exchange with the Feis Spé Cairngorms Ceilidh Trail. The week consisted of workshops in music, song and language, creating and highlighting an awareness in the close cultural connections between the Highlands of Scotland and Northeast Donegal. With performances both formal and informal and workshops in “stage craft” helping the young musicians gain the tools in delivering their performances in their native tongues, this was an extremely beneficial and yet enjoyable week bringing three groups of musicians together in an fun and encouraging project that will further create links between the communities and groups involved. From the photos below, I think everyone can see that there was a great amount of “Craic” had during the week.
Looking forward to the return visit!
