A Christmas First for Strathpeffer
23rd November 2010
The production “Heire Bannag- A Celtic Christmas Surprise” , will for the first time, present a bi-lingual mix of Gaelic Christmas carols and songs, literary musings on the Christmas Story, contemporary dance and other surprises to be released on the night.
Fiona Mackenzie said: “I’m delighted that Angus Peter has agreed to work on this exciting project with me and it’s an absolute first for the Highlands. Never before has a mix of this music and literature been produced in the area.
“The whole idea for this project is a natural follow on from the release of the first Gaelic Christmas CD “ Duan Nollaig” in 2007 where myself and producer Irvin Duguid produced arrangements of both ancient and contemporary Christmas carols and songs. The CD has proved to be very popular right across the world and not just at Christmas.
“We wanted to ensure that the wonderful richness of culture which we possess here is heard as widely as possible and also appeals to those who have an interest in Gaelic literature. Being bi-lingual, the production is suitable for Gaelic speakers and non speakers alike. Angus Peter is of course, one of Scotland’s premier poets and it is a great coup for us that he is joining us for this unique Christmas event.
“We will also be endeavouring to make the audience smile with a few seasonal surprises!”.
The cabaret style concert will take place in the Pavilion at 8pm and will also feature Fiona Sellar, head teacher of music at Nairn Academy, on piano and Dingwall Gaelic singer and clarsach player Katie Mackenzie.
Tickets priced £12/10 from www.the-booth.co.uk or http://www.strathpefferpavilion.org

Aw, what a disappointment. I was hoping for three wise men and a virgin.
