2nd time lucky: Tin whistle and song workshops with Nicola Black and Blackie (Andrew Black) for 8 to 18 year olds. No previous experience necessary, if you enjoyed Feis Rios classes at school you'll know the kind of thing.
We're looking forward to this, Blackie (Andrew Black) will be teaching tin whistle and I will be teaching Gaelic Song. It is for 8 to 18 year olds and open to beginners. We don't expect you to know Gaelic or tin whistle already.
Na Sienneadairean (Galic Singers) will be meeting tomorrow at 11 in the Village Hall in KPD. All welcome. Here's some of the singers giving it laldy at last weeks Gaelic Burns Supper. Ro math!
Yesterday the Gàidhlig Dumgal Burns Supper was a treat. Speakers, pipers, accordionist, pianist, organisers and cooks and all did so well. One 10 year old managed to do singing, dancing and fiddle! I was very proud of Na Siennaidairean, (regional Gaelic singers). A big heugh tae us all.
Na Seinneadairean, that's the Gaelic Singers, will be meeting tomorrow morning, 11 till 1 in Kirkpatrick Durham Village Hall, ( use the side door for Lesser Hall). We had a right giggle last week.

From Liam Chalmers. :Over the Xmas period I've been more and more upset by the news of the developing crisis in the Yemen. I've decided that I cannot simply sit about and watch those kids starve and die through no fault of their own.
I've decided to do some busking in the Dumfries High St on Saturday 30th December - from 11.00am to 2.00pm. See the attached posters. It would be great if anyone else would be prepared to join in. We could look on it as a sort of "Folk Aid". The more the merrier! If you don't think you can busk you can always 'join in'. Let's make it a big "Singalong for the Yemen".
