Singing the Story: The Death of Connlaoch

From chiefs’ halls to ceilidh houses, heroic ballads and their stories
have been at the heart of Gaelic culture for centuries. Two exceptional
performers, singer Margaret Stewart and storyteller Pàdruig Morrison,
use tale and ballad to share the story of Connlaoch – son of the
Scottish warrior-princess Aoife and Irish hero Cú Chulainn – who dies at
the hands of his own father. Performance in Gaelic with provision in
English. Organised by Celtic and Scottish Studies, University of
Edinburgh, and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig UHI. Supported by the Hope Scott Trust and the Royal
Celtic Society.
