    I HATE THIS. Everything about it. And some call it progress. I actually have no words. I am ashamed. twitter.com/ukhomeoffice/s…
    A lovely wee programme, have a listen and learn something new! twitter.com/rj_macinnes/st…

    Delighted that Tàladh Chrìosda is at number 2 in the iTunes World music chart, thank you to everyone who has downloaded it! Can it hit the top spot? The link is here if you would like 4.5 mins of calm and harmony. itunes.apple.com/gb/album/id144… #Gàidhlig #Nollaig
    Available for download now, my version of a beautiful Gaelic Christmas hymn in the form of a lullaby. Composed by Father Ranald Rankin and recorded at @StMarysSpace itunes.apple.com/gb/album/id144…

    My favourite Christmas carol as translated into Gaelic for me by Flora MacPhail. Have a lovely weekend and stay warm and safe. m.youtube.com/watch?v=RygEIc… #Nollaig #Gàidhlig
    The image below says a lot, but the question should be not what we do now, but ‘how on earth did this happen’? So many lies told and still being told by a completely corrupt, self interested government. twitter.com/MollyMEP/statu…

    I was honoured to be the Mace Bearer for the @WHC_UHI graduation ceremony last Friday. Most of all, I was proud of all graduates, and am looking forward to working with this year’s cohort of music students in the coming months. twitter.com/WHC_UHI/status…
    Heading to Inverness for the @blasfestival finale! Looking forward to hearing the bands and performing with @Skipinnish later on. #ÒranMòr #Gàidhlig #Ceòl
    Looking forward to being part of this special Blas performance! twitter.com/eilidhmack/sta…
    Looking forward to this! twitter.com/Skipinnish/sta…
    Hmm, Gaelic speakers, amongst the kindest, most welcoming, most hospitable people, whose homelands you are most likely travelling to, certainly do not deserve your ill conceived, rude, insulting tweet. Have a great trip. t.co/AFP2rRoCCS
    Looking forward to joining Skipinnish for this local gig, should be a good night! twitter.com/Skipinnish/sta…
    A beautiful Gaelic song recorded for a brand new Xbox game, by a talented young Gaelic speaker and singer. Gaelic is dead? I think not. #ThaGàidhligbeò twitter.com/eilidhc_/statu…
    Think I’ve been hacked- don’t open any messages from me, I’m fixing.

    Not long before @LietIntern kicks off this evening. Uralic, Galician, Aantwaarps, Surinamese, Frisian, Bashkir, Scots, Gaelic, Aromanian, Cornish, Sami and Franco-Provençal languages all being represented tonight in songs of different styles. A privilege to hear them all. #Ceòl
    Getting set to head to Friesland tomorrow, to be a Jury member for Scotland at @LietIntern minority languages song competition. Very much looking forward to hearing the Scottish Gaelic song by @whytetheband and all the other entries. A true joining of culture and music.

    Heading to bed with #IsMiseGaidhlig trending at number 3. Started by @LiamAlastair it’s an amazing testament to the positive strength of support for the language. Là sonraichte air Twitter! Oidhche mhath leibh uile.
    Absolutely loving the #IsMiseGaidhlig tweets. Cùm oirbh! Raise your voices and show the world how important the language is and how far reaching. #Gàidhlig
