Glasgow Islay Gaelic Choir sings at SNP Dinner

Thursday 28th November, 2013

Twenty-two choir members performed at an SNP Dinner in the Thistle Hotel, Glasgow on Friday November 22nd and sang four songs - Cathair Eaglais Ghaidhealach (Highland Cathedral), Cum ur 'n Aire, 2013 Puirt a Beul and A Bhanarach Chaoin.

From the audience reaction in the hotel main function suite this was a most successful 'gig' for the choir. Does it get any better than singing between speeches by Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond to a packed venue?

According to Nicola on Facebook the 'choir were fantastic'. Need to get her a job as an adjudicator at next year's Mod in Inverness!!
