Charlie McKerron Sell Out Concert

One of SEALL’s most astonishing concerts happened in the tiny Tarskavaig Hall on Wednesday 29 April. It was standing room only (max 50 seats!) for an acoustic line-up with Charlie McKerron, Marc Clement, Ross Ainslie and Tim Edey. You do not get any better than that. And as openers we had Malin Lewis and Steven Stark from the Plockton Trad School of Music. Sometimes we are very privileged with the musicians who want to play in our spaces. Thank you Tarskavaig for a great wee hall.

Our best excuse yet for a no-show

SEALL Secures funding from Creative Scotland

The SEALL Board is delighted that we have been awarded key funding towards our work this year. We have secured £55,000 from the National Lottery through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Fund.

Seall runs Fèis an Eilein, the two-month Skye Festival which takes place this year between 4 July and 25 August. At the end of October, Seall co-produces the Skye Swing Jazz Festival with local record producers FOTS Records.

Duncan MacInnes, Seall’s director, said: “With this funding from Creative Scotland, we will be able to create the high level of administration our programme needs. We have relied on a lot of volunteer support for years and, because of this, often miss out on artistic and fundraising opportunities.”

He added: “Our application to Creative Scotland followed on from a very successful Cultural Tourism Project we delivered two years ago and our current Cultural Economies report.

“We will now able to pursue new funding opportunities and develop our programme of events and workshops. This will reach new audiences and enhance the reputation of the area as a major centre of cultural activity.”

40 people at our AGM – must be doing something right!

The SEALL Board was delighted to welcome 40 folk at the AGM on Monday 17 January. This was followed by some healthy and lively conversation and ideas, particularly about The Skye Festival from 4 July to 25 August. We said goodbye to Frances Macdonald and Chris Pendlebury and welcomed Robert Spode on the Board. The accounts revealed SEALL to be in a healthy state and the colourful Annual Events summary showed what a remarkable year 2016 had been for SEALL in celebrating 25 years of promotion.
