Workshop: Scottish Gaelic Puirt-a-Beul

April 19, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Scottish Gaelic Workshop with Richard Hill

Gaelic singer and scholar Richard Hill will present and teach a Scottish Gaelic workshop on “mouth-music” or puirt-a-beul.  By studying and singing simple dance tunes, participants will take a look at the eternal rivalry between the wintry Cailleach and Brìde, spirit of spring.  Welcoming the spring season, Richard will tell traditional Scottish Gaelic folktales through this medium of “mouth-music”. Come join your voices to explore the light-hearted joy of singing puirt-a-beul, and enjoy the wonderment of human expression in song. Lyrics will be provided.

Richard Hill – Gaelic teacher, singer, and founder of Slighe nan Gaidheal, the Pacific Northwest Gaelic Society. Slighe nan Gàidheal is a non-profit educational society that teaches and promotes the Scottish Gaelic language and culture in the Pacific Northwest.

Hear Richard in concert on April 18 with the Beltane Boys.
