If you can…

Donations will go first to pay the musicians; once that goal is reached, additional donations will help recoup losses for this summer’s tours, tip Ed Pearlman for organizing these events, and provide bonuses to musicians.

We use Zoom – if you haven’t used it before, no need to prepare – it will download when you click the link above.  For basics on how it works, visit our Zoom webpage.

Gillebride Macmillan

Gillebride (pron. Gill-ah-BREEDGE-eh) is from South Uist in the Outer Hebrides. Gaelic is his first language and Gaelic songs and traditions were always an important part of family life.  He performs Gaelic song, and teaches Gaelic at university.  His recordings include both traditional songs and new ones he has composed, all in Gaelic.  He stars as Gwyllyn the Bard in the Starz production of “Outlander” where he regales those in Castle Leoch with traditional Gaelic songs and tales.

Allan Henderson

Allan grew up in the western Highlands in a musical family, and currently lives on Benbecula, between North and South Uist. He toured with the band Blazin’ Fiddles for 15 years, is a teacher, composer, and tells entertaining historical stories about Gaelic culture.  He is a well-known part of the music scene in Scotland, as are his siblings, harper/pianist Ingrid, multi-instrumentalist Ewen (of Mànran) and fiddler Megan (of Breabach).

Iain Angus MacLeod

From the Isle of Harris, Iain Angus has played accordion for many a performance, ceilidh, and Scottish dance.  His ceilidh dance band produced a CD of dance music.  During the day, he pilots a boat from Harris to show people the islands of St Kilda.

See Iain Angus play on top of a car before a wedding barn dance!
