Eigg’s annual festival of Gaelic music and culture began yesterday (Wednesday) at Eigg Community Hall.

Over the next three days musicians such as Angus Binnie, Kenny Knowles, Gabe McVarish, Andy Thorburn, Murdo Ewen Cameron, Sarah-Jayne Shankland, Leo McCann, Linda McCann and Nan Fee are bringing a range of music tuition and celebration to children on the island for Fèis Eige.

Lessons are available for children aged eight to 18 in fiddle, whistle, guitar, percussion, button box, chanter, step dancing, keyboards, group work, art and singing.

The programme also includes younger and older generations; there are workshops for the under-eights in art, music and dance, as well as some adult tuition taking place this evening.

The festival of traditional music will culminate in the Fèis concert tomorrow at 3pm, followed by what promises to be a ceilidh at 8pm.
