Welcome to the 2020 SEALL Festival of Small Halls.
The festival has been running for two years and usually takes place at the end of November over nine winter days. Last year, we won the MG Alba Scottish Traditional Music Award for Community Event of the Year and our aim is to bring big music to some of the most remote rural halls and venues in Scotland.
This year, our festival will take place online over three days and we invite the world to join us.
Between 26 and 28 November, nine of the nation’s finest traditional musicians will present two concerts and a cèilidh, using Scotland’s national day – St Andrew’s Day – as a reason to celebrate our unique Highland culture in the traditional way.
Concerts take place in the beautiful wee Braes Hall on 26 November, the majestic Dunvegan Castle on 27 November and the celebratory Big Cèilidh, featuring all of our participating musicians, will be live-streamed from Seumas’ Bar in the iconic Sligachan Hotel on 28 November for St Andrew’s Day.

This has been a challenging year for performing arts across the world, but we are working hard to continue to bring the very best in Scottish traditional music to the island and showcase our unique land and communities.
Although we are online this year, we hope to deliver the same high quality audience experience which has come to be expected from our award-winning Small Halls events.
Join us on social media for news about Small Halls as well as snippets of life on the Isle of Skye.
We look forward to welcoming you.
