Well, it’s nearly the end of March and we’re all STILL stuck at home! But Saturday nights don’t need to be boring – The Isle of Harris Distillery has been in touch with news of their third virtual Cèilidh of the year! The virtual Cèilidh is even bigger this month with a capacity of 500!
Isle of Harris Distillery has been working hard to help us all celebrate the joys of community and connection no matter how far apart we find ourselves in these unusual times. The Gaelic word Cèilidh (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 27th of March at 8 pm, 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 – Gaelic singer Chloe Steele, Gaelic singer and musician Donald Barker and musician Conal McDonagh. In addition, Callum John MacKay will also be joining to share some local history stories from the village Ardhasaig in Harris.
So grab your gin and dust off your going out gear and get ready for a great night of craic! Anyone interested in taking part should email [email protected] to receive a zoom invite and details on how to join.
