A little ceilidh on the ward at Clisham today with Euan on lead vocals and all the ladies joining in. We had a few requests and a good singalong. There were 12 of us altogether, including the staff team who came and went as they were able.
We enjoyed several local songs from Bragar, a couple of favourite Gaelic songs and a couple Euan learned especially for this session including a request for ‘You Are My Sunshine’. I’m pretty certain he’s never had a request for that before 🙂
It’s like New Year!
You’ll have a wee dram?
Come back any time!
One of the nurses actually shed a few tears at the way people were singing along. The cultural aspect of a ceilidh, where everyone interacts, talks about where they are from, where they are living now, local songs from the area and placing the singer to a village or town is particularly meaningful and highly personal.
Envious? Don’t worry, you can catch Euan singing Gaelic songs for FREE at Horshader Shop on Friday at 2pm this week (June 8th).
