Nordic Fiddler Bloc fill Braes Hall

Thankyou, the good folk of Braes for supporting a brilliant concert of Shetland and Nordic fiddler msuic on 4 March. The hall was full and we were treated to a brilliant opening set from sister Jos and Elsa Galbraith whcih received a well earned call for an encore. Kevin Henderson, Olav Mjelva and Anders Hall re really quite outstanding in their field, ranging from finger-skipping Nordic tunes to slow airs almost Bach-like in their composition.

We have filled an empty desk!

We are delighted to welcome Alissa Smith of Carbost to join SEALL as Administrative Assistant. She will be responsible for handling event and other income, making financial entries into our accounts system, and administering SEALL’s membership and keeping contact with our Front of House volunteers.

Thank you all fo showing an interest.

Pirates sing to a Full House

Inner Sound presented another night of top quality Gilbert and Sullivan to a full house on 13 July during the Skye Festival. This was a revival of The Priates of Penzance they presented 7 years ago. The start, as usual were the young soloists and chorus members. They took the concert to Portree, Kyleaking and Eden Court, “but our home is always with SEALL at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig”, said Anne Lampard, musical director.
