Donald MacIntyre, The Paisley Bard, composed some of the most famous Gaelic songs such as Bùth Dhòmhnaill ’Ic Leòid and Òran na Cloiche whilst living in Paisley.
Gillebrìde and Mary MacMillan will sing a selection of his compositions with a stellar band including Mhairi Hall, Ewan MacPherson, Fraser Fifield, Donald Hay adding a touch of musical magic to the proceedings.
The bardic traditions of bards such as Donald MacIntyre continue to the present day, however. This concert will also feature the first ever full performance of Gillebride MacMillan’s recently released album ‘Freumhan Falaichte/Hidden Roots’. His songs deal with contemporary Gaelic culture and politics and relates his personal experiences as a modern Gaelic bard.
This is a night of new and old Gaelic songs that’s not be missed.
