About this event

Choisinn Màiri Anna NicUalraig, Finlay Wells, Nick Turner agus Dòmhnall MacIlleathain coimisean gus obair-ciùil ùr-nodha a chruthachadh, stèidhichte air ceòl, òrain, sgeulachdan agus àrainneachd na Coigich agus Asainte. Thàinig an coimisean bho 'Coigach and Assynt Living Landscape Project'. Bidh an ceòl agus na briathran a' dèanamh luaidh air àite ach cuideachd air cultur is cànan a bheireadh tuigse nas fheàrr do mhuinntir sgìrean na Coigich agus Asainte air luach an dualchais fhèin agus gur e dìleab a tha seo a tha beò, cruthachail agus a' coimhead air adhart.

Coigach and Assynt is a land and a people in constant motion. The voices and experience of its people, sung out through their music and tales, paint a great canvas of human experience against a backdrop of rocks as old as the earth itself and a landscape which tells its own dramatic tales of the cycle of life.

Mary Ann Kennedy, Finlay Wells, Nick Turner and Donald MacLean were commissioned are part of the Coigach & Assynt Living Landscape Partnership Scheme to produce a multi-media performance which will feature responses to the place in music and language, especially Gaelic, reflecting long-rooted families, new arrivals, invested visitors and workers – and how they feel about the place. The connection between home and diaspora, and major historical chapters that have helped form Coigach and Assynt’s story.
