Voices of Oban Gaelic Choir filled Oban’s George Street square marking the singers’ first public appearance since Covid.
With lit-up Oban Bay as a backdrop, the choir entertained a gathered crowd on Thursday evening.
The event was organised by Naoko Mabon as part of a research residency On Tidal Zones, hosted by Skye-based ATLAS Arts and CLIMAVORE.
The choir performed a number of songs all linked to the area’s long relationship with the sea and coastal landscape. Sileas Sinclair was the conductor.
Naoko said: ‘What an evening, really glad that people enjoyed it and so did choir – everyone said that it was great to be able to sing again in front of people without masks!’
The choir will be travelling to Inverness for this year’s Mod but there will be no competitions this time, only a showcase of performances.
