Artwork Sought for e-Cèilidh Broadcasts

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is seeking artwork submissions to be included in a new gallery segment of the fortnightly e-Cèilidh broadcast.

The artwork will accompany Fanaibh a s' Taigh (Stay at home) a song written by one of e-sgoil’s Gaelic singing teachers.

Local children are asked to do a painting or drawing depicting the “stay at home” message, a thank you to NHS staff & key workers or perhaps simply a rainbow. 

The artwork should then be photographed by an adult and sent into the e-Cèilidh team via the email address below, these pictures will then be collated and displayed in a montage on the e-Ceilidh broadcast.

In addition to artwork from local children, photographs and paintings depicting the islands have also been requested.

These pictures will again be displayed in a montage this time accompanied by the e-Cèilidh theme tune, which has been written by another of the Comhairle Instrumental Music Teachers.

If you would like to contribute, please send your photographs or photographed artwork via email to: eileansiareceilidh@gmail.com 

Please also include the artist/photographers name and location in your email so that they can be credited in the broadcast, and for photographs please state where the photo was taken.

Next Saturday’s e-Cèilidh (23rd May) will be hosted by local musician Iain Mackinnon and will feature performances from a variety of other local artists.
