Travelling Folk Gaelic Songwriting & Lisa O'Neill

Gaelic songs have been composed for over 1000 years. Indeed some of these earliest songs are still sung at ceilidhs and gatherings to this day. However, this unbroken chain of Gaelic song composition almost came to an end in the 1970s and 1980s. The decline of the Gaelic house ceilidhs and the decline of traditional poets meant that Gaelic songs were few and far between. However, in recent years there has been a revival of new and contemporary Gaelic songwriting. Known as the Outlander bard and language coach, Gillebrìde MacMillan is a renowned songwriter and lecturer in Gaelic Song at The University of Glasgow. In a new 10 part series on BBC Radio nan Gàidheal, Gillebrìde explores contemporary Gaelic song compositions. He joins Anna to chat about what's coming up on the series.
