Discover Gaelic Folk with Fun App

A new app entitled Fun Folk has been developed to introduce young children to traditional Gaelic music, song, stories and dance.

Youth arts organisation Fèis Rois will make it available as a free download for use on most mobile devices and the app will be launched in Edinburgh by Fiona Dalgetty, Fèis Rois CEO, at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on Wed 1 June as part of an interactive day for those working in Early Years, with a chance to try out the app, enjoy live performance and meet the Starcatchers team to find out about Arts from the Start.

Robyn Stapleton – a previous BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year winner and Mod gold medallist Darren MacLean have recorded items for the app, alongside involvement from traditional music bands including Treacherous Orchestra and The Shee.

Funded by Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative, the project brought together a team of artists who worked with more than 400 children in nursery schools across Edinburgh, Glasgow, North Lanarkshire and the Highlands. They collated a number of songs, games, activities, stories and dances that feature on the app.

Early Bird Ticket – book before 23 May for £15
Normal Ticket Price – £30
Children’s tickets are free and there will be childcare provided in the form of creative play sessions introducing little ones to music, song, story and art.
