Candlelit Ceilidh

Mairi Campbell hosted a very enjoyable candlelit ceilidh in the hall bringing with her the pupils she was tutoring at one of her Lismore Fiddle Retreats. These musicians came from all over the country and beyond and together with some locals, they formed the evening’s house band. A great variety of songs, poems, dances and various instrumental items created a great evening of entertainment. Mairi herself treated us to one of her newer songs about the journey her widowed grandmother made back to Scotland from China with two small children: "Home (is not what I left behind)". It was a very moving performance indeed and this song will be released in May on her album "Soundcloud". Katy Crossan, Sarah Campbell, Yorick Payne, Mary MacDougall, Stephen Green and Sebastian Tombs were among the locals who performed.
