GAELIC CHOIR CEOLRAIDH FROM ARGENTINA SET SIGHTS ON 2018 DUNOON ROYAL NATIONAL MOD

CEOLRAIDH

Created in August 2002, the Argentine choir Ceòlraidh is the only choir in Latin America devoted exclusively to performing traditional Scottish songs in Gaelic.

Ceòlraidh have been invited to participate in the Royal National Mod to be held in Dunoon 12-20 October 2018. After 15 years sharing their music locally, they would love to be able  to travel to Dunoon compete in the Mod and share their music with us all.

CD-CEOLRAIDH

To travel from Argentina to Dunoon and to compete in the Royal National Mod is going to be very expensive, to help with the cost they are looking to see if any of the good folk of Cowal could possibly help by providing accommodation and help with local transport and in return they will be willing to sing at other venues or concerts out with the Mod activities

On the first Wednesday of each month our resident Astrologer Lynn Carter  calls into the John Street Studio to tell us what she reads in the Star Events Chart — Each of us are born with an eclipse close to our date of birth. Here is one such eclipse meaning. ” Its energy is about large ambitious group projects. These will require a separation or the breaking of a bond that already exists. The individual may well experience the eclipse initially as a separation and then joint achievement” (Predictive Astrology. Brady) This eclipse belongs to Theresa May. The task to oversee Brexit has fallen to her. there is something far larger than ourselves at work here. We are all in the hands of the cosmos as each of our charts are activated.

DUNOON GRAMMAR SCHOOL BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER FOR MENTAL HEALTH

see me logo

Over the last year the school has become one the most active schools in Scotland in improving attitudes around mental health. They are one of six pilot schools for the brand new ‘What’s On Your Mind?’ pack from national anti-stigma programme See Me.

The school has been working with See Me over the last year to pilot and test the pack which supports teachers, and pupils to develop skills to tackle stigma and discrimination.

As part of their work they are holding a Walk a Mile event around Dunoon on June 9th. Pupils from all over Scotland will be coming to take part in the walk, as well as Scottish Commonwealth Games cyclist Rab Wardell.

The walk will be taking place through the centre of town and people from Dunoon are encouraged to come out and get involved. A market place on mental health will be held between 11.30am and 2pm at Argyll Gardens.

The idea of Walk a Mile is to bring together anyone who cares about tackling mental health discrimination, to break down barriers as they walk a mile in each other’s shoes.

So far thousands of people have taken part in Walks across Scotland, getting a chance to see each other as they really are, not the labels they may have been given.

Head teacher at Dunoon Grammar School, David Mitchell, said: “I am extremely proud and honoured that Dunoon Grammar is one of only a small number of schools chosen as a pilot for See Me.

“Mental health is an extremely important subject, but one which people sometimes feel too ashamed to talk about. It shouldn’t be this way.

“We need people to realise that it’s okay to feel sad or anxious, and we need them to know that it’s okay to open up and talk about their emotions.

“We want to show that mental health can be a topic of everyday conversations, and we are all responsible for creating a positive attitude about it.

“We have decided to hold a Walk a Mile, in association with See Me, which will be attended by a wide variety of people. It would be great if the local community could join in and support the cause too.”

Elsa Jean McTaggart in Concert
at Uig Hall
Friday 26 May at 8pm

Tickets £9 from Bookpoint or call 706591 to reserve a ticket

Award winning Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist

With her fabulous velvet voice and rich sultry tones Elsa weaves a colourful tapestry of vivid anecdotes from her unusual past and life on the road and evocative song (think contemporary folk sprinkled with Bluesy Jazz and topped with the unexpected), interspersed with her own compositions from dynamic jigs and reels to wildly haunting celtic airs on the Fiddle, Penny Whistle and Button box.

Not only a passionate and masterful musician, Elsa is chatty, funny and engagingly entertaining! With poetic fluency and an easy rapport with the audience, she draws you into a magical dream, a self-penned musical portal to that land of the soul where only one who’s been there can guide you. The audience is left with no doubt of her craftsmanship both musically and on the stage.

See her website for further information:
