Long regarded as the heartland
of Gaelic culture, the Outer Hebrides is home to a vast wealth
of artistic and musical talent - talent that reaches out from
these small islands to a global audience.
Other venues such as Taigh
Dhonnchaidh in Ness, Seallam!
in Harris and Taigh
Chearsabhagh Arts Centre in North Uist also host regular programmes
of events and exhibitions which highlight different aspects of
the Western Isles.
From Barra Live through to
the award winning Ceolas Music
Summer School, the Harris Arts Festival and Hebridean
Celtic Festival to Ceol
Nis there is something for everyone in each island community.
The Gaelic language and culture of the Outer Hebrides is at the
core of a treasure chest of music, song and dance going back centuries.
This wealth of Gaelic arts
and music can be found in formal and informal settings throughout
the Islands at any time of year.
