COMING UP

It’s the summer, it’s hot, it’s time to be whipped into a wild ceilidh-ing frenzy by COISIR LUNNAINN, the LONDON GAELIC CHOIR (and the cheap bar)

They’ll have you at rollicking reels, doing waulking songs on the wild side and…. enjoying their showcase of fab Gaelic singing at their ceilidh on SATURDAY 12th JULY 2003.

  • there’ll be fast and furious puirt-a-beuls – mouth music – the old songs that were used for dancing (we can keep singing as long as you keep dancing)
  • there’ll be new, modern arrangements of ancient Gaelic songs (Gaelic meets Gershwin anyone?)
  • there’ll be the premiere performance of a gorgeous new arrangement of one of the most haunting Gaelic songs
  • there’ll be beautiful clarsach playing from the choir’s prize-winning ALEXANDRA JONES
  • there’ll be authentic, fun singing from the choir’s brightest stars – including ANDREW ROBERTSON, CAROL MOORE and LINN PHIPPS
  • there’ll be loads of great dancing.
