Isle of Harris Distillery hosts first virtual Cèilidh of the year

Hands up who is missing get-togethers right now? While it may be some time before we’re gathering in person again, the team at Isle of Harris Distillery have been working on something to help us all celebrate the joys of community and connection no matter how far apart we find ourselves in these unusual times. You’re all invited to join a virtual cèilidh with them!

The Gaelic word (pronounced kay-lee) is often associated with kilts, highland dancing and a full band of Scottish musicians, but it is a word which simply means visiting and socialising with friends – which requires no fuss or formality. All you need is yourself, and something to drink!

On Saturday 30th of January at 8pm UK time, you are invited to join the Harris Distillery team at a safe social distance for some storytelling, music and a bit of ‘craic’, all from the comfort of your own home. Your hosts, Iona Cairns and Calum Barker, shall be joined by three musical guests – composer and songwriter Josie Duncan, fiddle player Shona Masson and accordion player Graham MacIllinnein.

All are welcome to join the first virtual Cèilidh of the year, please email [email protected] to receive your Zoom invite and details on how to join.

You will also receive a special Harris Cèilidh recipe to enjoy on the evening!
