    A wee bit late today after a long day travelling, but- A Song a Week #25 is now available for listening on my YouTube Channel - this week it’s Going Home. youtu.be/VN0GAjcbxmI
    Big sigh. Why exactly do people hate / feel threatened by Gaelic so much? Scottish people? It’s beyond me. Trolled since yesterday and I give up.
    It’s tiring reading all the anti- Gaelic posts, and mostly I skip over. This one made me think though. How about a list of reasons for sending a child to GME? 1. The amazing career opportunities available to Gaelic speakers... Who wants to go next? #thagàidhligbeo twitter.com/ricardo_bald/s…

    A Song a Week #20 is up for listening. A Waulking song with some bird song this week! youtu.be/GQa15wMSKts #ceòl #òrangachseachdainn
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a scary thought, but given the voting intention south of the border, a next general election (which is likely soon) could make Nigel Farage a front runner for PM. Terrifying. #letmeoutofhere twitter.com/heraldscotland…

    Pleased to have recorded some vocals on this album. twitter.com/Skipinnish/sta…

    A Song a Week #15- Mo Rùn Geal Òg / My Fair Young Love - to commemorate yesterday’s anniversary of the Battle of Culloden. Available on YouTube now. youtu.be/ZULI1Wchjsk
    Make no mistake, the media, including the BBC, have aided the rise of this man and his hate speech, allowing a voice to the far right, promoted above all others. Would he be in a position to start this ‘new party’ without the endless publicity he has enjoyed over last 2 years? twitter.com/BBCPolitics/st…
    My own brother in law’s ‘registration’ was not accepted. He is a hard working business owner with a young family in the Highlands. If it’s a simple ‘registration’ then surely it’s not a case of being accepted or not? Happily resolved at second attempt, but stressful & unfair. twitter.com/CMonaghanSNP/s…
    A Song a Week #14- Indiana by Andy Mitchell now available for listening on YouTube youtu.be/3086yFKxlaE
    Exciting times for arts in the Highlands. twitter.com/jamesmackblack…
    I wonder how many Gaelic speakers there would be today had it not been brutally beaten out of a generation. twitter.com/accentricitypo…
    Oooft! This was a bit misjudged! twitter.com/Scotlandteam/s…
    This was a wee bit mental for a girl who has been going to @EastgateNess for years growing up and then to see it packed out to hear a wee west coast band I’ve been singing with for 20 years. #humble #honoured #amazingtimes twitter.com/hmvInverness/s…
    This was a fab way to spend the afternoon! twitter.com/Skipinnish/sta…
    A Song a Week #13 - Griogal Cridhe / Beloved Gregor featuring @Cruinn_Band now available on my YouTube channel youtu.be/iZGf9bRvkxs
    A lovely night in Assynt! twitter.com/Cruinn_Band/st…
    A great watch. What an expressive language, great to see more diversity in parliamentary debate. twitter.com/lumi_1984/stat…
