Luadh le Mire | Live Laudh (waulking songs)

February 23 @ 5:30 am - 6:30 pm

Women waulking at the table

Seinnidh is mìnichidh sinn mu Òrain Luaidh. Bhiodh “luadhadh” air a dhèanamh mar bu thrice le boireannaich gus clò a thiughachadh le bhith ga thoirt a-steach, agus rinneadh iad an obair fhada seo na b’ aotroime le òrain. Am measg luchd-imrich Albannach ann an Canada, bhiodh fireannaich a’ seinn cuideachd. Cothrom gus pàirt a ghabhail ann.

We will perform and explain about waulking songs, Òrain Luaidh. Waulking was done usually by women to thicken tweed by shrinking it, and the lengthy task lightened by singing. Amongst Scots migrants to Canada, men would sing too. Opportunity to participate.

Gàidhlig is Beurla | Gaelic and English
