Eilidh Shaw and Ross Martin
Calum Alex Macmillan was born and brought up in the Isle of Lewis and was surrounded by traditional music and Gaelic song from a young age. He has gone to become one of Scotland’s leading Gaelic singers and is one of the youngest ever winners of the Mod Gold Medal.
Calum who sang and played with Gaelic supergroup ‘Dàimh’ between 2006 and 2012 will be joined by the band’s guitarist Ross Martin for this concert.
Iain is a hugely popular performer at the Festival having performed and headlined at the Dalriada Connections Concert and Gaelic Nights over the past few years.
Iain is also a past winner of the Silver Pendant at the Royal Mod.
Tarbert Gaelic Choir
We are delighted that Tarbert Gaelic Choirs will perform for the first time at the Gaelic night since 2019
Àdhamh Ó Broin /AAgiv oh BRIN/ @Gaeliconsultant is a writer, musician and Gaelic language activist of Irish and Caithness parentage and was brought up in central mainland Argyll. He is the first person to raise a family of native speakers of the Gaelic dialect of this area in 80 years and has revived many old songs and stories from the Cowal and Mid-Argyll area. Àdhamh and children are currently working on a few of these songs as part of their repertoire in a fledgling Gaelic family band called GLAN which can be found on Instagram @glan_band.”
