We have three experienced and wonderful teachers for this year, all returning by popular demand.

Angus MacLeod is a Gaelic speaker, singer, storyteller, artist, writer and actor. He was born to Gaelic speaking parents in a Cape Breton Gàidhealtachd. He learned Gaelic on his own through song and by speaking with local elders, augmented by classes at various institutions in Nova Scotia.

Angus began teaching in 1998. Since then he has taught Gaelic language and song at the Gaelic College of Arts and Crafts, St. Francis Xavier University and Cape Breton University, and at many venues throughout Canada and the U.S. He is a renowned story-teller and also an accomplished Gaelic singer who conducts Gaelic song workshops in Nova Scotia and online. We offer him the heartiest of welcomes back to Beinn Seanair!

Alasdair Whyte was brought up in Mull and his family home is in Salen. He developed a passion for the language and for Gaelic song at a young age and was awarded An Comunn Gàidhealach’s Gold Medal at the Royal National Mòd in Dunoon in 2006 at the age of 19.

He is now a regular adjudicator at the Royal National Mòd. Alasdair is a composer of verse and song and his debut album, ‘Las’, which includes both local traditional songs and self-penned Gaelic songs, was released in December 2012.

Dr. Anne Lorne Gillies is a singer, broadcaster, writer, public speaker and Gaelic activist. Raised on a croft in Argyll, she was immersed in Gaelic culture and in a broad range of musical styles. She won the Women’s Gold Medal at the Royal National Mòd in Scotland at the age of 17 in 1962 and has since performed at numerous venues and events.

She wrote a definitive book on Gaelic song, “Songs of Gaelic Scotland,” now in its third edition, and has recorded many albums, as well as producing the famous “Speaking Our Language” television series. Dr. Gillies is also a life-long advocate for Gaelic. She is a former National Education Development Officer with Comann na Gàidhlig, and in 2009 the Scottish Government named her Tosgair na Gàidhlig, a “Gaelic language ambassador.”
