New Gaelic music festival will provide virtual link to star names

It’s a new event which has been designed to showcase the power of Gaelic music in the midst of lockdown.

Tional, featuring a whole host of stars, will be broadcast online from Friday September 18 to Sunday September 20, with financial backing from the organisation Bord na Gaidhlig’s Covid-19 support fund.

In the latest of a series of successful digital events and broadcasts during the current restrictions, from Tinto Music School to Stonehaven Folk Festival, Simon Thoumire of Hands Up for Trad has now unveiled Tional (pronounced Chew-nul).

The word translates as a gathering or a collection and the weekend will encourage speakers and learners to use and celebrate Gaelic language and culture.
