Fhuair mi mo thogadh anns na Criochan Albannach, ged a rugadh mi anns a taobh an iar, ann an Irbhinn. Dh’ ionnsaich mi mo chuid Gaidhlig aig Sabhal Mor Ostaig san Eilean Sgitheanach. Bha clasaichean seinn agam ann, comhla ri Cairistiona Primrose is Wilma NicUalraig. Rinn mi cursa ann an Ceol Tradiseanta aig Colaisde Bheinn na Faoghla, fad da bhliadhna. Tha mi air a bhith a ghabhail pairt aig an Fheis Celtic Connections ann an Glaschu, agus a’ seinn aig ceilidhean ionadail ann an Loch Abair, far a bheil mi a’ fuireach a-nis.

 

 

 I was brought up in the Scottish Borders, although I was born on the West Coast, in Irvine (Ayrshire) I learned Gaelic at Sabhal Mor Ostaig in the Isle of Skye. I received tutoring, in the form of song classes, with Christine Primrose and Wilma Kennedy. I also studied Traditional Music at Benbecula College for two years. I have taken part in the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, and sung in local ceilidhs in Lochaber, where I live now.
