Soisgeul Choir is Back!

Published: 11 Mar 2020

​Soisgeul – the amazing Gaelic Gospel Choir - is back! And we are so pleased to be part of several events taking place in Inverness this weekend raising funds and awareness for the Royal National Mòd’s return to the Highland Capital later this year.

Mary Ann Kennedy will be joined once again by our guest director Gareth Fuller and pianist Paul Watson for two days of intensive (oh yes they are!) workshops, learning some more of our unique Gaelic interpretations of Gospel classics, and revisiting some old favourites.

Gareth – one of the UK’s top choral directors – is making his fourth visit to Scotland with Soisgeul, and he’s almost acclimatised now, having had the ‘bracing’ introduction of a first visit to Iona at the tail-end of winter three years ago!

If you’ve never heard us but ready for a life-affirming new experience, or you’ve heard us and can’t wait for more, there are two opportunities to hear us in action this weekend.

We are honoured to have the opportunity of singing a guest slot on Saturday night (14th March) at Jury’s Inn (the old Thistle Hotel) for the legendary Iain ‘Costello’ MacIver and New Tradition.

And please come and support us in the Eastgate Centre on Sunday 15th! We’ll be singing an hour set with Gareth and Paul at the ‘Blue Wall’ (near Waterstone’s) from 2pm. O Happy Day!

Soisgeul gratefully acknowledge the support of Creative Scotland and the Tasgadh fund for this event.
