Fèis Rois: Bheir dhomh am fonn

04 May, 2020

2020 marks thirty years since the inception of Fèis Rois nan Inbheach, one of Scotland’s leading arts organisations. Sadly, their anniversary celebrations were curtailed this year due to Covid-19 but this didn’t stop them bringing the party to us! Amongst their weekend of virtual celebrations was a fantastic concert, with performances directly from the homes of some of Scotland’s premiere traditional musicians. Their line-up featured stalwarts of the Scottish traditional music scene, such as Donald Shaw and Karen Matheson; West Highland Cèilidh royalty Iain MacFarlane and Ingrid Henderson; Gaelic singers Mischa MacPherson, Brian Ó hEadhra and Fiona MacKenzie, amongst many others.

Joy presented an hour programme from these performances, which aired on Monday night on BBC ALBA. It truly was a fantastic concert that can be watched again here, if you missed it. Here’s to the next 30 years of Fèis Rois!
