Renowned Gaelic singers Gillebride MacMillan, Mairi Macmillan and Mairi Morrison will appear alongside the Kinnaris Quintet to present a collection of traditional Gaelic songs and original compositions exploring themes of migration, both historic and contemporary.
This unique performance marks the 100th anniversary of the sailing of the Metagama from Stornoway, transporting impoverished islanders to Canada and America in search of a new life. The separation of families and the exodus of so many young islanders left an enduring mark on the Hebridean psyche and resonates with the plight of modern day migrants.
This is Kinnaris Quintet’s only Glasgow appearance arranged for this year.
