Oidhche Challain [The Old New Year] – Stories and Songs

On January 12th we’ll say hello to the New Year in the old tradition, reaching an important point in the Celtic Calendar. The candle burning brightly in the window is a sure sign that we’ll be welcoming passing friends and neighbours inside for a traditional ceilidh at the Glad Café. Come and witness some of the by-gone rituals which will help us bury the old year and and share our songs, stories and bonnach to celebrate the new. We’ll be first-footed by folk like Mairi Campbell (award winning musician, singer and dancer), Gillebride MacMillan (Internationally renowned Gaelic singer from South Uist and Outlander star)and Murray Willis & Friends will provide a few tunes for dancing – so bring your dancing shoes and your own songs and stories and we’ll keep the fire burning through the night!

This is a fundraising event for Bella Caledonia
