From chiefs’ halls to cèilidh-houses, heroic ballads and the stories they told have been at the heart of Gaelic culture for centuries. Two exceptional performers, singer Margaret Stewart and musician and storyteller Pàdruig Morrison, will use tale and ballad to tell the story of Connlaoch, son of the Scottish warrior-princess Aoife and the Irish hero Cú Chulainn, and his death at the hands of his own father.

Performance in Gaelic with provision in English

There is no need to book – just come along on the night. All tickets £5, Young ones free.
