Fèis Thiorodh and an Iodhlann, Isle of Tiree, 2012. Booklet.
Traditional, Gaelic songs from the island of Tiree.
Foreword by Dr. John Holliday, Chairperson, Tiree Festival.
The island of Tiree is known for many things --- its sunshine, its barley and its windsurfing. But an increasingly forgotten part of its heritage is the island's traditional poetry and songs.
This booklet is an attempt to re-invigorate that tradition by producing twenty Tiree songs in a modern notation with translations, notes and music.
During the summer of 2011, Fèis Thiorodh asked islanders and visitors to list their favourite songs written by Tiree people. A 'chart' of the 'Top Twenty' resulted; and these songs are presented here in the order of their popularity.
