Learn Scots Gaelic with Gaelic speaker and local tutor Andrew Wilson from Wigtown who we're delighted is supporting us again this year by facilitating another Introduction to Scots Gaelic language workshop.
Gaelic is our oldest surviving native language, the language of some of our songs, stories and the language of the people who gave Scotland it's name. Although it has not been spoken in Galloway for 400 years, 80% of our place names were in this language.
Why not acquaint yourself with this part of our heritage? Starting with some simple phrases and what some words mean, the workshop will look at how to introduce yourself and say where you come from. Information on where, and how you can learn more, and what on-line resources now exist for would be Gaelic learners.
Community centre facility owned and operated by local community charity Newton Stewart Initiative.
6 concerts, 7 workshops, sessions all over the place all weekend, beautiful sunshine, fabulous musicians...2017 was our best year yet with lots of new faces and, pleasingly, musicians as well as our regular visitors who we love to see back every year. We already have some announcements for 2018 which we'll be making in due course plus there'll be lots of new additions to the website over the coming months so please stay tuned for all the latest.
