A very special celebration for Tiree as the award winning Tiree Song Book comes ‘home’ after a sell out concert at Celtic Connections in 2017. Lead by Mary Ann Kennedy and featuring a stellar line-up of musicians, it is a honour to have these special concert feature at TMF2018

“The blue book of Na Bàird Thirisdeach has been part of our lives since we were born. If we didn’t receive it as a Gaelic prize at school, it was certainly on the bookshelves in our homes and from an early age, and still today, it is a point of reference for us leafing through its pages to sing many of the clever and insightful lyrics composed by our forebear poets. It has been uplifting and the greatest privilege for us to take those lyrics and tunes and to create this CD. And to highlight that the bardic craft is still practiced, we have included two songs from three of our 20th & 21st century poets – Flora and Angus MacPhail, and the late Niall Brownlie. There is no way that we can repay the bards of yesterday and today for the wonderful words they have shared with us.”
